    Yes, this policy sucks. No, this might not have been the best way for them as a company to confront this particular problem. It really stinks that many people in our profession get treated no better than the average factory worker. That said, if you want them to continue signing your paychecks, you have to follow their policies. Dem's da berries.

    Now, a couple of labor-related comments, if I may. First, I'm pretty sure most states don't require cause for dismissal, contrary to what an earlier poster asserted. I know mine doesn't. They don't have to give you a reason for letting you go. Second, sending this to OSHA seems an exercise in futility, and not because Bush oversees OSHA. If this memo was directed by someone above the publisher's level, it was also likely perused by a company attorney before it was issued.

    For the better. You don't want to work there anyway.

    Amazingly enough, every single person in that newsroom left, either willingly or unwillingly, within two years after that. Utterly shocking. ::) ::)
