This will not make me popular...but dammit, I am right on this one.  We have to stop thinking about the "Stop Work Authority" we all give our workers like it is some kind of control or barrier.  IT IS NOT!!!

At best it is a prevention tool, but mostly it is used retrospectively to blame workers for failing to stop.

Enjoy this podcast.  I am sure I will get some tomatoes thrown against my house.  Thanks for listening.  Tell your friends and subscribe... More people are always better.
