“The emancipation of the working class will only be achieved by the working class itself.” — Karl Marx

Don’t Pee Here!

Got to do your business? Not if the bosses at WaterSaver Faucet Company of Chicago have anything to say about it. They started an electronic tracking system, giving their work force 60 minutes over 10 days to go to the bathroom. Really? Six minutes per 8 hours of work to go to the bathroom?

And they have already disciplined 19 workers for “excessive use” of the bathroom.

But not to worry! For “good” employees, there is a silver lining. A “reward” system to give a gift card of $20 per month if workers don’t use the bathroom AT ALL during work time.

Unbelievable, but true!
