I have decided thus that it shall be cruel and indeed criminal to make employees work for large periods of time in rooms without windows. Especially when severe weather is imminent.

It is also particularly depressing to realize that I work in a hospital based on a hierarchy of fear.

I suppose that's better than a pornocracy

Ok, ok, just wanted an excuse to mention the technical term for 'rule by prostitutes'

I second this. I very much dislike rooms without windows on principle.

Am I missing the point?...

I also like windows, but doesn't the severe weather aspect make this a horse of a different color (remembers the Wizard of Oz just for a moment)? Seems like a very maternal concern for your safety to have you work in an environment free of harpooning shards of glass.

Harpooning shards of glass...BRING IT!

Actually, every monday I work in the basement of a huge ass shopping center outside of Tokyo. Not only is the place in the basement, but, it is located in the center of a parking garage. It is as if the place functions as a business and a support pillar for the shopping center. As a result I receive absolutely no phone reception and I tend to get drowsy quite quickly due to what I presume to be the lack of oxygen as there are no windows.

Also, when I worked at a pizza shop back in Minnesota, my greatest joy sometimes was looking out the big window near the pizza makers. If you were lucky, you could see the Romanian church down the block lit up by the setting sun following a coal black thunderstorm which still lingered in the background. Or the ominous split pea colouring of a storm ready to throw ice upon unsuspecting pizza delivery drivers, who had already been caught in the heavy rain.

Re: Am I missing the point?...

Somehow I doubt any of corporations guilty of said illegality have any instincts that could remotely considered 'maternal'.

Well said, Madame Doyle.
