LAZY SOCIALIST BASTARDS... BRITS OFFERED CAR IF THEY "DON'T" CALL IN SICK

Britain's state-owned postal service has found a novel cure for rampant absenteeism among staff -- tempting malingerers back with the chance of winning a car.

[...]

The employees like it, as a company we like it -- we have 1,000 more people every day than we would otherwise have had if nothing had changed," a Royal Mail spokesman told the newspaper.

"It benefits the customers, too, because good attendance goes hand in glove with good quality of service."

For years, the Royal Mail was plagued by inefficiency and high absenteeism levels, and in 2002 was losing over a million pounds a day.

There's government efficiency at its best... Paying state employees is no longer enough. Now they have to treat them like babies and offer them "candy" to come to work... What a joke.
