Vatican- Financial Crisis spreads to Holy City- Laymen to Cardinals to clock in and out

Despite the awesome Liturgical uniforms we all associate with church officials, now, with the credit crunch, the Vatican is getting employees to swipe their way in and out of work with magnetic cards- to get rid of slackers. The practice which was lifted under Pope John XXIII, is that of keeping such tabs on employees working for the Vatican, via clocking in and out. The reforms will enter into action 1 January next year. It comes with efforts to punish bad workers with pay cuts, and reward good ones with bonuses. It comes in accordance with the Christian concept of the Catholic Christian church- of "if a man wants to eat, let him do something useful with his time", if he refuses to do something useful, let him not be supported, that is to allow those who cannot work, or cannot find work, to get what they need.
