The state sucks…
Starbucks might welcome this development, but some Ohio Department of Transportation employees will not.
Employees who collectively contributed hundreds of dollars to a “coffee fund” — used to buy coffee and snacks for employees at an ODOT warehouse in Lima — have been told that the fund is being dissolved.
The decades-old fund helped employees avoid expensive trips to such vendors by purchasing coffee and sundries that employees and others visiting the warehouse could buy under an honor system. ODOT does not provide coffee for employees.
The system apparently ran afoul of ODOT rules governing funds.
“There was no impropriety in setting this up, but it really did create a lot of gray,” ODOT spokesman Scott Varner said last week.August 12, 2009 4:37 pm at 4:37 pm #294159
Curious what right that ODOT had to take a community generated fund and apply it to a general company fund. Doesn’t seem to be grey that ODOT stole that money from their employees and most likely as a result they will see an effect on their productivity from this move. The problem that loss in productivity follows the food chain right back to the tax payer!August 12, 2009 9:47 pm at 9:47 pm #294160
ODOT workers…lost productivity? no way!!!
people don’t work state jobs because they like to work hard and be held responsible for what they do, those people work in the private sector.
