Even In ND, You Can Make Staff Get A “Pony”! Y’all OK With That?
So in trying to be clever and avoid the ever watchful and suppressing eyes of the FB police...let's talk about getting a pony!
Have you got your pony yet? Is so when are you getting your second pony?
Maybe you're not thinking about getting a pony at all.
Going way back to November of 2020, I wrote a conversation starter asking what the community thought about employers requiring staff to provide proof they got a pony. I'm just curious if the conversation has changed in the many months that have passed. Especially since so many people have now gotten a pony.
I'd invite you to click and read an article recently posted by T. Arthur Mason on his The Minuteman Blog. I've said this before, but I think I would greatly enjoy a sit down diner lunch with Mr. Mason. We may only agree that the ice is cold, but I'd hope the conversation would be thoughtful and respectful. He's a great writer and always seems well-sourced.
If you're not with the internet PD, feel free to click this link to read all about a memo from a Fortune 500 company doing business in North Dakota and requiring all of their employees eventually "pony up" to continue to be employed. Is it legal? Experts say probably. It's actually a three phase pony plan and it might not be until September before you need to establish proof of pony. September? That my friends is a very long way away. But it's wise to give people ample time to warm up to either having a pony or finding another job where you can live pony-free!
