I'd be pissed too, 2 minutes is nothing, and you get fined $8 USD if you're late once, fired if late twice.

How much do they even get paid? I can't imagine it being even half that fine

2 minutes! That's a deal. I worked for a company in West Chicago that fired people for taking any bathroom breaks outside of specified break times.

Blah, Blah, Blah

I'd be more pissed of the stall with no doors and a hole in the ground to dump in rather than the 2 minute time limit.

wow time limits on bathroom breaks and specific times that you can use the washroom WTF. i wouldn't work for a company that penalizes one for mother nature calling. I mean I can do it all in 2 minutes but dam what about the women? Sorry that's to controlling when we stoop to that level for bathroom breaks

go time traveler style and go back in time, fuck his grandma, then shoot forward in time and then fuck his mom. Then return back to present state and call him a the product of two incest whores and hes your son and show video of you plowing the both members of his family. .

Were they previously abusing the time?

I've worked at a manufacturing plant in China for almost 18 months from 2000 to 2002. The folks that worked at this plant weren't exactly the most motivated and often found ways to sit around. It got so bad the plant manager banned chairs from the production floor. They produced as much scrap (defective product) at this plant as all the other production facilities around the world *combined*.

You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich.
You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.
You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.
You cannot lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer down.
You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred.
You cannot build character and courage by taking away people's initiative and independence.
You cannot help people permanently by doing for them, what they could and should do for themselves.

Again, sounds like the place I worked at in West Chicago except they never gave anyone the option of a chair in the 1st place.
