Cashiers Diapered to Avoid Breaks?

BUENOS AIRES, Argentina (Reuters) - Supermarket cashiers in
Argentina are being forced to wear diapers to keep them from
taking toilet breaks at work, a union says.
Female cashiers in western Mendoza province must wear adult
diapers in case "cold, nerves, pressure or stress" provoke
incontinence, union official Jorge Cordova told local news
agency Diarios y Noticias on Thursday.
Cordova refused to name the supermarket, but he did say the
chain is backed by foreign capital, said Sandra Varela,
Mendoza's labor subsecretary.
"The truth is, it's difficult to imagine a line of 20 adult
cashiers wearing diapers for eight hours," said Varela, who
is investigating the matter.
"In seventeen years as a labor lawyer, I've never heard
anything like this before," she added.
