On Wednesday, Government Executive reported that Management for Region 8 in Denver, Colo., wrote an email earlier this year to all staff in the area begging them to stop defecating in the hallway. To make things worse, EPA managers had to consult with a national “workplace violence” expert to tell them that feces in the hallway constitutes a health hazard.
Government Executive added:
In the email, obtained by Government Executive, Deputy Regional Administrator Howard Cantor mentioned “several incidents” in the building, including clogging the toilets with paper towels and “an individual placing feces in the hallway” outside the restroom.
EPA spokesman Richard Mylott provided the following statement:
“EPA cannot comment on ongoing personnel matters. EPA’s actions in response to recent workplace issues have been deliberate and have focused on ensuring a safe work environment for our employees. Our brief consultation with Dr. Nicoletti on this matter, a resource who regularly provides our office with training and expertise on workplace issues, reflects our commitment to securing a safe workplace.”
And to think these people are paid with our tax dollars. Maybe the EPA should invest in diapers and nannies to potty-train their employees.
Keep in mind, this is the same agency that’s now doing all it can to destroy America’s coal industry…
