Supervisors are giving out discipline points for any reason they can and they’ve already fired many workers for getting too many points. If you punch in one minute late, you get points. If you get sick and have to leave early, you get points. They’re even disciplining people around FMLA, though it’s a federal right to take unpaid leave. This company is constantly at war with its workers. The company makes it perfectly plain: they’re every workers’ enemy.
