Let's see,,??? 50,000 lbs at 2 bucks a pound equals $ 100,000.
Take the guy out back and beat him with a rubber steam hose until he pisses himself. That'll learn him.(then slap the sh!t outta him while escorting him off the property.)

Lot's of plants allow few bathrooms breaks. Some employees use catheters.

I've seen employees (all male) urinate on the factory floor, inside machines because they don't want to lose production rates or they are too lazy.

One more excuse to get rid of the human work force.

Illegal, oops undocumented worker, as in many of our meat packing plants? Meat packing used to be a union, well paid profession. Contaminated meat almost unknown.

Other country sanitation? Ah pee on it!

I apologize for my harshness.

It's just that I sincerely appreciate a big juicy steak and pot roast beef dinners.

Overreaction on my part. I'm sorry, won't happen again. Piss away everyone...
