Did you ever wonder how union construction workers stay on time with work start/stop and break times without automatic bells and whistles?
Well the answer is reasonably simple... Have a dedicated Journeyman clockwatcher on staff. The clockwatcher will also need a union Stewart and a foreman he can report to.

That looks like a well run job.

3 different trades watching one clock so the GC saves on clock costs.
Not a cellphone up to anybody's ear either.

U. A. Brothers?

That would explain 3 to know what time it is.

You would think so, but none of them were taught roman numerals, so Sheis had to come and ask me to tell him the time so he could tell the stewart.

Young pups, probably all raised with the digital watches so they can't tell time on an analog clock. I got a stepvermin like that. Funny thing is he spent 12 years staring at an analog clock in school. He finally made High Honor Roll for being smart enough to know where the big hand and little hand had to be when it was time to go home.

I had him lined up for apprenticeship in the UA Local but he was sure the Constitution said he didn't have to pee in a bottle. He told the Coordinator where he could shove the Apprenticeship.

Too bad we couldn't convince him that chewing tobacco wasn't one of the drugs that they were testing for.

What's wrong with chew?

I miss Cody.

It's a damn shame you ran him off you wormy cork soaker.

I do appreciate you acknowledging that I am punctual though.
