THIS IS STUPID AND DANGEROUS AND THE PEOPLE BEHIND IT SHOULD BE FIRED:Asking people to show up on time is not inclusive, says Clemson employee training. “It disrespects other people’s cultures to ask them to follow American conventions of appointments starting when they are literally scheduled to start.”It disrespects our culture to be in America and not follow American conventions. And Clemson is mostly an engineering school, where precision and accuracy matter more than culture. Or should, anyway. . . .

This reminds me of the semiconductor plant built near Gallup, New Mexico several decades back. It hired a lot of Indians who had otherwise no job opportunities. Soon though, it happened: one day no one showed up for work. Several days later, they were back. Asked why they didn't come to work, they replied, "everyone knows that there was a rodeo up in Tuba City". The plant didn't last much more than a year, if that.
