    Is this why we aspire to work a corporate job? So adult humans are treated, not like children, slaves or pets, but like the adults they are? Why does corporate America hate their Union employees so much, that they degrade even the most fundamental bodily functions? I am sure this company is another Hobby Snobby in the making, I see "increasing productivity" is still the norm in profit seeking America, I would not work for this company icon_rolleyes.gificon_redface.gif

    This story reminds me when I was in kindergarten, the teacher refused to let me use the bathroom even when I held my crotch, I ended up peeing on the floor, through my pants while sitting at a desk, humiliated and laughed at by the other kids. It was too traumatic to remember anything after that

    "They offered $1 per day for anyone who doesn’t go to the bathroom at all," said Nick Kreitman, senior business agent for Teamsters Local 743. So far, 19 people have been disciplined, with written or oral warnings, he said.

    I suspect that what's driving this policy is workers repeatedly going to the restroom so that they can use their cellphones to make calls, check e-mail, or text. This has become a problem at some places over the past few years. That's what happens with modern technology. It seems awfully childish to put a time-limit on the amount of time that an employee spends in the restroom. One would think that in most cases, an overall policy advising employees not to spend an excessive amount of time in the restroom, would be sufficient. A morning break, followed by lunch, followed by an afternoon break, to me, would seem to be reasonable. But if the policy is being abused, I suppose they would have to put some time limit on it.

    Maybe they could hire a security-guard to stand outside the restroom with a notebook, monitor peoples' restroom time, and log them in and out. Or maybe he could just make them hand over their cellphones before they step inside, and return them as they exit.
    (Just kidding !)
