I read the article and tl;dr
It was about how different cultures have different understandings of time. For example someone has a meeting at 11:00 so he/she has to be on time. But one culture might understand that as being there at 10:45 while the other at 11:00. The employer might see that as late if you come in at 11:00 because he doesn't understand the cultural differences. So he is deemed.... racist?
Yeah it still doesn't make any sense
@Ald0bii, Don't you know, learning was invented by white men, and is, therefore, racist. Thus, no one should ever bother to learn anything about other peoples and only perceive the world through the narrow lens provided by their upbringing and... wait I think I got turned around somewhere.
@Ald0bii, I've never gotten upset at an employee for being a couple minutes late. Shjt happens, but not every day. The reason managers want you to be there 10 minutes early is so you can gather yourself before it's actually time to start work. That doesn't mean you actually have to start working at 10:50. That means you have 10 minutes to relax before your shift starts, which I am 100 percent on board with. However, if you continually come in at exactly 11, clock in so you aren't late, and sit in the break room for 10 minutes, well then that's gonna end up being a problem, because that 10 minutes will wind up being an hour if I keep letting it slide.
@Ald0bii, interesting thought with a click bait execution and article title
@Not him again, that's how I've always been. I usually get to work 2-3 minutes before 8, then immediately jump right into a forklift, crane, or truck to get started. I can't stand making small talk waiting for the clock to tick over.
@Ald0bii, sounds like some actually useful information about different cultural perceptions smothered by an agenda
@Ald0bii, But is it more of less racist than correcting their spelling?
@Not him again, That’s essentially two different kinds of theft. If you sit in the break room for ten minutes after you clock in, just not doing shît, assuming there’s actually shît to be done, then you’re technically stealing from the company. However, if you’re a manager who expects employees to be early to work, but not clock in, you’re basically robbing them of either time or money, and can also fvck off (not YOU, specifically, just that kind of manager). It’s up to the employee if that’s time they want to take. The only time you should be expected to come early or stay late is if you’re on a job, like nursing, where the prior shift has to pass on crucial info to the next shift. Then there has to be overlap. However, you still get paid for that shît.
@Berntley, no I've never expected anyone to be early. Most of the time even being a couple minutes late isn't going to bother me unless its every shift. As long as they are ready to work at 11, I don't care what they do
@Not him again, I get you
@Nellybert , *or
I did a field study at Clemson and let me tell you that campus community is as crazy as it sounds.
I’m right behind you Mario
The article is from the Blaze. So whatever the article is. It's likely sensationalist nonsense.
*pokes head in... Nope. Fvçk this shjt."
Ha! Jokes on you!
I always show up 5 minutes late!
@JacieTwisted, only 5? Teach me how to be on time.
