A recent AP story reported on the plight of workers at the Jim Beam bourbon distillery in Clermont, Kentucky, who are now being restricted to just four bathroom breaks per eight-hour shift. Workers on the bottling line who violate the policy can be fired, and the story reported that Jim Beam employees have even urinated on themselves because they were afraid to leave the line. We think Jim Beam should reconsider its policy. If you re really looking for a place to go, and you ve got hundreds of empty bottles whizzing past you and being filled with a urine-colored liquid, well -- let s just say we think we ll get someone else to taste our bourbon before we take a swig of it.
