The cost of 15 mins in the bathroom

[8/8/2010 12:00:00 AM]

AMMONNEWS - By government calculations, the cost of each employee spending 15 minutes in the bathroom would reach JD 17.5 million per year.

The idea, of course, alluding to the government's calculations of 1 hour spent by government employees browsing the Internet costs the government JD 70 million per year, leading Prime Minister Samir Rifai's government to block access to over 48 websites from the internal network at all ministries and public agencies.

    The logic is purely flawed. Browsing the computer while working is a non-essential activity and a waste of time. It is a distraction. Going to the bathroom is an essential need for an employee and helps them be in a better condition to do their task.I hope AmmonNews engages in more responsible editorialism in the future, pointing out issues that actually matter, instead of attacking the government for good moves.EDITOR: It's just a cartoon :)

    I agree with Eyas, more concentration should be pointed towards issues that really matter. I personally think its a great idea to block sites that waste employees time and provide fictional information.
