Internet Commiserates With Worker Docked 15 Minutes For Running One Minute Late

The Wages and the Fair Labor Standard Act was established to keep employers honest and hard-earned money in employee pockets. According to the Department of Labor, employers are “required to display an official poster outlining the requirements of the FLSA.” Unfortunately, that’s not always the case. A Redditor by the user name “MrEktidd” took to the “Am I the A**hole (AITA)” forum to tell the tale of docked pay and, not surprisingly, the internet collectively did the same.

“I come in to work every day an hour early(paid OT). A few times I was literally less than a minute late and had 15 minutes docked from my pay,” the Redditor wrote. “So now I refuse to work if it’s not being paid. Task is going to take me 2 minutes after the home bell? Guess I’m stretching it for 15. Clock in at 5:46? Guess I’ll sit and wait til 6. If you’re gonna take my money, I’m gonna take your minutes. Simple as that.”

The story resonated with many who shared their own tales of unfair working conditions in regards to money and time worked.

rservello said: “I worked for a company that was taking their taxes out of our pay and claiming it’s because they were paying as 1099 and just taking the taxes out that would have been taken anyway. Firstly. I filled out a w4. Secondly, if I were 1099 I would get the entire amount with nothing taken out. I didn’t hire them to do my taxes. We got a class action suit against them and won. I got my lost wages back plus an additional $1500.”

“I was the bookkeeper for a man who would edit his employees time card if they clocked in early. If they were supposed to be on at 7am and they clocked in at 650am, he’d manually alter their time card to say 7am. Even if they were on early and working, he’d still do it and not tell them. I finally quit because he was a shady MOFO,” votedog wrote.

“Worked somewhere that would the owner would clock us out after close despite us being there 30 mins to an hour after actually closing. I think I worked 3 shifts before I quit,” Snoyarc said.

ilostmygender weighed in saying, “was half the reason i quit working at a swim school where we were required to be there 20 minutes early for “pre-shift meetings and setting up the pool” but they always changed our hours manually to our scheduled time, taking away those 20 minutes every single time.”

“I had an employer do this to me when I was 19 making like $9 an hour at a sandwich chain. I was paid bi-weekly and had kept all of my clock out receipts and he was off by 9 hours. $81 isn’t a ton of money, unless you are making $900 a month, then its quite a bit. Called the owner of the franchise (his father-in-law) and told them what happened and that I had contacted an attorney. Dude fired his son-in-law and paid me $250. I quit a week later and the guy ended up getting divorced a few months later…. over $81,” Fatpostman39 added.

LATourGuide found some retribution adding, “I worked somewhere that got sued for “rounding” the time clock to the nearest 15 minutes. They had to cut us all a check for all the rounded off time, I got about $400.”

From Mu, Delta, IHU to NeoCov, here is a list of the many variants of coronavirus



From Mu Delta IHU to NeoCov here is a list of the many variants of coronavirus


The deadly coronavirus emerged from a wet market in Wuhan during the year 2019. Over two years and the world is still battling the virus and its variants. Here is a list of the variants

Mu variant

The ‘Mu’ variant was first reported in the United States during January 2021. The cases only numbered in the single digits.

The World Health Organisation continues to classify ‘Mu’ as a ‘variant of interest’ globally.


Alpha variant

The Alpha variant of coronavirus is believed to have gained ‘skills’ to successfully block the ‘innate immune system response.’

A research states that the variant blocks the airways sensors, thus stopping the process where these sensors ‘warn’ the immune system about the presence of a virus in the body.

Since the variant has learnt how to block the functioning of the sensors, the body is unable to produce any anti-viral protein interferon.


Beta variant

A scientist from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine and a member of Sage claimed, John Edmunds, warned that the Beta variant  may be able to evade Covid vaccines.

“The Beta variant has remained a threat throughout. It is probably less infectious than the Delta variant that is spreading here in the UK at the moment. Where it has an advantage is that it is able to escape the immune response to a better extent,” he said.


Gamma variant

The Gamma variant was first discovered in Brazil.

Samples of a study collected in Manaus between November 2020 and January 2021, highlighted that the Gamma variant is 1.4–2.2 times more transmissible.

It further showed that it is capable of evading 25–61 per cent of inherited immunity from previous coronavirus diseases.


Lambda variant

The variant was first reported in Peru during December 2020. As per NHS, the main symptoms include high temperature, continuous cough, a loss or change in the sense of smell or taste.

The Delta variant of coronavirus was responsible for a wave of cases in most countries. It was first identified in India and it led to a second wave in the nation.


Delta variantCDC claimed that the Delta variant is twice as contagious as earlier variants; and might could cause more severe illness.

Those affected by the Delta variant experience fever, cough, loss of taste, smell, as well as extreme tiredness. Sore throat, headache and diarrhea are also less common symptoms.
