The SEC Gives Staffers Another Way to Access Online Porn

Finally! After six grueling months of negotiations with the union representing Securities and Exchange Commission’s employees, the agency plans to issue 294 BlackBerry’s to certain staffers by the end of July. We're not sure whether the new devices will be the old-school Berry’s with the side-scroll wheel or the newfangled 3G models with web browsing, but you can be sure SEC favorites like www.ladyboyx.com will be blocked.

Finally! After six grueling months of negotiations with the union representing Securities and Exchange Commission’s employees, the agency plans to issue 294 BlackBerry’s to certain staffers by the end of July. We're not sure whether the new devices will be the old-school Berry’s with the side-scroll wheel or the newfangled 3G models with web browsing, but you can be sure SEC favorites like www.ladyboyx.com will be blocked.

The BlackBerry deal came together after a tough fight with the union, which feared already stressed-out employees would be responsible for responding to emails after 5pm. So they worked out a deal so they could shut them off on weekends and after normal business hours.

"We just don't think employees should be expected to be on call 24/7," says Greg Gillman, a Boston enforcement attorney who serves as the local union president. "It wouldn't be fair to characterize employees as lazy," adds Gillman, who represents almost every SEC nonmanager whether they sign up for the union or not.
