The sad thing is, there's a whole army of Internet Tough Guys ready to argue on behalf of the poor, misunderstood company for trying to keep its lazy workers in line.
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.
Of all the trolly comments written by bad people on this article, my favorite has to be this one:
They already have unlimited bathroom time during their 1 hour of break time each day.
So generous! If you can't save up all your waste matter for one twenty-minute-long purge on your legally required lunch break, you deserve to be fired. That'll teach you to excrete biological waste when you should be eternally grateful to the free market for even bothering to provide you with a job, you worthless pee factories.
(Yeah, and Slog tipper Greg sent this one along, too. You can have eight minutes of bathroom time today, Greg. You've earned it.)
