So, my husband is currently working security. When he signed up for the job, it was made known that he has classes on such and such a day, and times, and that those would take priority. Recently, the company hired a whole bunch of people, and now that there are more people, workers are not getting their breaks. Makes perfect sense, right? They are currently working 14 hour days, seven days a week. His classes are off this week, but they will not be next week, yet the 14 hour days will still be occurring. This will 1. cut into his classes and 2. not leave him any time to sleep (you know...minor detail). He is not the only one in this boat, including about classes. He is definitely not the only one ticked off right now. They actually had him scheduled for 24 hours, until it was pointed out. It seems like the classic mix of 1. incompetency and 2. simply not caring/considering your workers for even a second. I absolutely can not stand that. Did not think this would be an issue with this company, but apparently it is. In the past, we worked security, and were denied even bathroom breaks and, not kidding, toilet paper. To quote, "we can't spend that kind of money on you". Electricity was not turned on for us for the same reasons, including heat in the dead of winter. Husband and I had to commute, work back to back 12 hour shifts, and trade off sleeping in the car. I remember brushing my teeth and changing since it was my turn to head to the car, and one of the managers stopped by. He talked at length about his vaulted ceilings and latest vacation (again, not kidding/elaborating), then looked at me and started getting angry as to why I was out of uniform. Had to explain that I was not on duty and remind him that my husband and I were working back to back shifts while he stared blankly. The level of disconnect is always absolutely amazing to me. At any rate, are any workers rights being violated here? Does anyone know of a site/forum/source I can ask about this specifically? All he'll want is to be able to fit in work, class, and sleep, and/or change jobs without making waves. On my end, I'm envisioning something more along the lines of having management stand in one spot for 14 hours while cattle prodding them (and the cattle prod would be the only addition to what they are doing to said workers), but that's just me.
