the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few ?
 
working on the assumption that each person is equal, that i've
counted the WG members by TZ correctly:
  
  10 => 1,
   6 => 1,
   1 => 3,
   0 => 2,
  -5 => 7,
  -8 => 18,
 
and then you accept my weighting for each hour of the day
(this is the tricky bit):
 
0-5am =0, 6=2, 7=3, 8=8, 9-11=9, 12=8, 13-17=9
18=4, 19-21=2, 22-23=1
 
a quick and dirty perl hack (attached) gives: 
 
   -8    -5     0     1     6    10
