Ryanair Employees Banned From Charging Cell Phones At Work

from the assistant-TO-the-regional-manager dept

Europe's high flying discount airline, Ryanair, has decided to ban cell phone charging at work. Though the company spokesperson claims that "nobody has batted an eyelid" in reference to the new policy, it could be that the employees are too incredulous to comment. Whether this policy is meant to be a cost savings or to reinforce a "good work ethic," it is simply silly. Ryanair workers will now have to rely on hand-crank generators to charge their phones, which I'm sure will have a much bigger affect on productivity.
