"Illinois Tollway underlings took photos of their boss sleeping on the job because they were upset he was finally making them put in 'a day’s work for a day’s pay'..."

"... an attorney for the fired Tollway boss said Friday."

Nice mix of topics today, Professor! You are really on your game.

The reason they took the pictures is irrelevant.

Don't sleep on the job.

Why is there even a question about this?
If you are sleeping on the job you should expect to be fired even if everyone loves you.
I know Obama is getting worried about it. Right?

The union mentality.

Jay said...

Thankfully these hard working people are in a union that protects their "rights" and ensures their working conditions aren't dangerous.

" The union mentality. " What was the song they used to sing in their advertisements..." look for the union label......". It's easy to find, just listen for the snoring.
What Illinois should do now is question the underlings as to how long this practice has been ongoing, and demand that the supervisor remit all of those monies that he was paid whilst snoozing....plus interest and reimbursement for benefits paid.

How many Illinois Tollway employees does it take to dig a hole?

Seven. One to run get donuts, three to stand around leaning on their shovels watching, one guy to supervise the crew, and an undocumented Hispanic named Jose to actually dig. Plus a guy named Vinnie who doesn't have to show up because his uncle is Chicago alderman.

Thanks to sequestration in Washington the State of Illinois is thinking of laying off Jose.

What's yellow and sleeps three?

DPW truck.

Surely that employee had more useful and important tasks than photographing his supervisor. I hope a thorough investigation reveals his identity and that he is properly reprimanded.

This is the third time this asshole has been fired - and he will be reinstated again. Mark my words. This is IL, not the real world.

Synova said...

Why can't they just fire him because they *want* to?

He gets "fired" three times and gets them to hire him back twice so far?

Wow... and certain people like to act like it's private industry that's immoral.

Not to worry, it won't be long before the poor bastard is receiving disability checks for narcolepsy.

If he's connected he'll have a better paying state job in a week.

Since toll collection in Illinois is mostly automated (iPass), may we assume that tollway staff has been radically reduced?
