For the want of a bento box, a Japanese worker who habitually left his desk three minutes before his official lunch break has been docked half a day’s pay.
"He Left Work for 3 Minutes Before His Lunch Break. Now His Pay Is Docked." is from the June 22, 2018 World section of The New York Times. It was written by Yonette Joseph and Makiko Inoue and narrated by Fleet Cooper.
