I really feel notably dangerous studying this, as a result of I’ve at all times blamed decreased daylight hours on farmers. I assumed they’d petitioned to get an additional hour of daylight in, nevertheless it seems, this is not the case.
The truth is, when it was first carried out on April 30, 1916 as a World Struggle I measure in Germany (to preserve electrical energy), farmers hated the time change. By the point the follow made its solution to America in 1918, farmers disliked it a lot, they led a combat to repeal nationwide Daylight Saving Time in 1919. See, the solar, somewhat than the clock, dictates farmers’ working hours, so the change in time really labored to their drawback.
