How would it affect the world if it became mandatory to be a 24 hour a day society?
I was just wondering how it would affect the world if everything had to be 24/7. Gas stations mostly tend to be open 24 hours a day, and thus they need to employ people (a good thing), but they also have to offset their staffing costs by giving shitty wages (a bad thing).
How would it affect our economy, our technology, our culture and everything else if the world was somehow forced to go 24/7?
In other words, you sleep 6 to 10 hours a day/rotation, but when you are awake, be it 3pm or 3am, everything is open and going on.
At 3pm you could go to the cinema, the grocery store, off to work in an office, school, or anything else, and at 3am it is just the same.
What kind of problems and benefits would there be to such a scenario?
