Really... I hate people nitpicking about a couple minutes here or there... one way or another. I gotta work a little long ...so what.... I take a little long break ...so what again.Wow, you could just try treating your employees like people and see how that works. Hour on Friday every now and then,if they've been doing a good job all week, never hurt anyone.
I gotta troublehoot something, I can get into it and be aware of downtime, or I can go through the motions... you wanna hafta watch guys every minute, or you wanna be able to trust them to make good decisions when you aren't there.
And please spare me the two minutes times ten guys times five days etc.... anyone can work a calculator. You're dealing with people.. a ten minute break doesn't amount to a hill of beans anyway... ain't even worth takin.
Glad I don't work for the OP.
