The Detroit News reported Thursday that management at the company's Michigan Truck plant in Wayne, Mich., issued a memo in which it said too many of the factory's 3,500 hourly workers are spending more than the 48 minutes allotted per shift to use the bathroom.
The extra-long breaks are slowing production of the Ford Expedition and Lincoln Navigator sport utility vehicles that are built there, the company said.
"In today's competitive environment, it is important.

If I worked for Ford, I'd spend 4 hours a day in the john reading Chevy magazines, 2 hours on smoke breaks enjoying the weather, and the last 2 hours making fun of the "Ford Family Plan."

Story in CNN some years back about a Mexican sweat shops. Employees were not allowed toilet breaks except at lunch. Many of them wore "Depends" and changed them at lunch break! Couldn't live like that!:(
