The New Times reports on the treatment whistleblower Roger Rodriguez got when he complained about working conditions and employee behavior at the Social Security Administration, where he worked answering phones. Rodriguez complained about employees working at other jobs on the clock, emplyoees getting paid for time when they were not working and about the fact employees were never told what disease killed one of the workers -- the government offered to pay for any medical tests they might want, but without knowing what the man died of, this didn't help much. Now, Rodriguez is watched by a federal officer around the clock at work, even when he goes to the bathroom.
