Job making us work during dangerous weather?
There was a tornado warning. Sirens were going off in the city. Roofs, cars, etc were getting destroyed. If you looked outside you could see things flying sideways. The city had a blackout. The tiles of the ceiling in our building were shaking and getting thrown off. We are a call center. The generators kicked in only enough to supply power to the phones. Yet they told us to keep doing our job. In the dark, listening to everything get destroyed around us. In fact I got snapped at when I didn’t keep doing my job immediately when told. I was too busy thinking something isn’t right with this picture…. but everyone just went back to work, all with a horrified look on their face.
A side of the building got knocked out. When we left work, the parking lot was blocked by derooted trees and traffic lightd and poles. Half of the workers cars were all messed up.
We found out a tornado had touched down not even half a mile from us.
So my question, was it even legal for them to make us keep working?
I seemed to be the only one that didn’t go with the sheep herd as soon as the boss screamed at us to keep doing our job. No one else spoke up. :S
