While the managers attempted to assert their dominance through humiliating acts such as public shaming and punishment, a small group of red shirts formed a counterculture ( a group that is against certain aspects of a society) that opposed the store and openly defamed it (page 70). They refused to properly wear their uniforms by sagging their pants, smoke weed in…

    So, just like he did, I tried to watch if people did that. Not only did I notice almost every person I watched did it, but I caught myself doing it a few times. Tables also play a big role.
