Years ago, I heard that Fastenal didn't give their employees a per diem for meals when traveling for business, because, as the pinchpenny CEO said "No need. They have to eat anyway." Yeah, dick, but on travel they don't have the option of cooking at home. Why pay for a hotel, then? After all, they have to sleep anyway.

Every time I run across the name "Fastenal," this story comes to mind and I get pissed all over again. Not that it's healthy, mind you.

/Headline is ironic.

Clearly, they are no staple of the manufacturing industry.

The only then I know about them is they drive around shiny empty full size pickups and they sponsor race cars.

24 hour work week at their stores.
Oddly enough, they advertize for employees every 90 days.
