We, the employees of the SPL, petition to management to allow use of stools during specified hours of an eight hour long, stressful, dreadful, debilitating, demanding, shift.
There is insufficient muscle strength in our legs for the amount of time we are required to stand during an eight hour long, stressful, dreadful, debilitating, demanding, shift. This time standing up can cause a number of serious tribulations that will be listed below. Because of the lack of stools, bicycles are being stolen on a regular basis. Our legs our too tired to chase after those who steal our bikes. There has become fear of harmful health side effects that prolonged standing can cause. This fear has made it increasingly difficult for employees to check arrivals, do bucket checks, check in customers, monitor parking situations, and perform their daily tasks. This is costly and inefficient for both employee and company. Fatigue created in the workplace is just one of many hindrances that a lack of stool use can create.
These hindrances include:
-Bone spurs that can often develop in feet (plantar fasciitis)
-Blood flow being decreased which can cause varicose veins
-Extreme emotional stress and fatigue
-Spinal column pain and overall misery
-Pain in heels of feet
-On a side note…. Health statistics suggest hundreds of thousands of people in the US could be suffering health problems related to prolonged standing. Almost 500,000 report lower limb symptoms caused or made worse by the job
-Heart and circulatory problems and pregnancy difficulties (Some of us want children!)
-Chronic heart and circulatory disorders are linked to prolonged standing at work
-Bad overall customer service to guests due to employees in a state of agony
We would like to pop the question... not the marriage question, but the question of the stool. We would like to at least use the stools during slow hours of a shift during specified time increments. Now... you may ask what are these "slow hours" that we have mentioned, so we shall tell you...
AM SHIFT- 6:30AM-7:30AM & 11:30AM- 2:30PM
PM SHIFT- 7:00PM-11:00PM
NIGHT SHIFT- 2:00AM-6:00 AM
Obviously both people at the front desk will stand at attention when a guest approaches our lobby of this fine establishment.
We promise that there will be no company or personal casualties of using the stool such as: falling, tripping, pushing, or death.
Thank You for your consideration.
From the Save SPL Stools Alliance
