Yeah, We Vote No

, , , , | Working | December 21, 2018

(I manage teams of door-to-door canvassers for political campaigns. Each staff member has their data time stamped with every door they hit so we can keep track of them when they are in the field. I am calling a staffer concerning a problem I noticed with his time stamps on his previous shift.)

Me: “It seems you didn’t start knocking doors until an hour after your shift started, and you stopped thirty minutes before you were supposed to.”

Staffer: “Yeah, is that a problem?”

Me: “Well, yes. We paid you to work for four hours, and you only actually worked for three.”

Staffer: “I don’t really see the issue.”

Me: “Yeah, we’re going to let you go.”

Staffer: “Well, I guess that makes sense.”
