Face of the County v. Asshole of the County
Millard "D" Freeman is the Premier Healthcare administrator in supposed command at Gracedale. He's trying to change what he calls the "culture".
I'd call it employee abuse.
Get this. Freeman has had to change the time clock to prevent workers from punching in any earlier than seven minutes before their shift starts. Before that happened, some employees would regularly check in 1 1/2 hours early and collect the overtime. There are some who would even decide to report in on their day off and get paid.
"It is unbelievable," Freeman stated in a report to Council's Human Services Committee last week. He added this waste had been going on for 20 years.
It is wrong for Executive John Brown to arbitrarily impose health plan increases on an already beleaguered and poorly paid workforce. But those few Gracedale employees who steal from the County deserve no consideration and disgrace the entire workforce.
Brown calls the County worker the face of the County. These thieves must be the asshole.
Any other County employee caught doing this would be fired on the spot.
