According to the Detroit News, a memo was issued Tuesday at Ford's Michigan truck plant in Wayne that stated too many of the plant's 3,500 workers were spending more than their allotted 48 minutes per shift in the bathroom. Supervisors will begin monitoring the amount of time workers spend in the john and "respond appropriately".

The article quotes an industry consultant who nicely sums up the ingenious move by upper management: "Only someone from Harvard could think of something as stupid as monitoring bathroom time."
