Outrage: Company Limits Bathroom Breaks to 6 Minutes a Day

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Spend more than 6 minutes a day in the bathroom at Chicago`s WaterSaver Faucet company and you`ll face disciplinary measures.


That`s what a union contends the manufacturer is pulling: timing bathroom breaks and warning employees when they can`t beat the clock.

The union, Teamsters local 743, filed a complaint with the National Labor Relations Board claiming WaterSaver unfairly disciplined 19 workers in June for "excessive use" of washrooms."


WaterSaver actually installed swipe card systems on bathrooms to make sure their employees don`t exceed their allotted time of six daily minutes in the restroom.

What`s next, will they install surveillance cameras inside the bathrooms to make sure employees aren`t gossiping about their mean supervisors?

WaterSaver adopted a rewards system where workers can earn a gift card of up to $20 each month if they don`t use the bathroom at all during work time. A few employees have already earned them, and I bet they are walking around in soiled diapers. Employees with a measure of self-dignity should meet up with these brown nosers in the parking lot and give them bloody noses.

I can guarantee that management spends more than six minutes per day in their private restrooms.

If I worked for WaterSaver I would march into the CEO`s office, pull down my drawers and take a dump on his desk, and I would water his plants with urine. If he uttered one word in protest, then I would really do something nasty.
