Some Texas employers are adding pain to the recent winter storm chaos.

The major winter storm that brought Texas to a standstill last week is forcing some Texans to use vacation time for the days the storm kept them from getting to work. Dozens of employers have told their workers to use vacation, sick, or personal time if they want to get paid.

the list of companies and entities demanding workers take the hit include the city of Dallas, Bell Textron Inc., BAE Systems and United Ag & Turf. The bigger issue is, there are no strong worker protections in Texas.

The snow and ice made roads impassable and knocked out power to more than four-million people. It left even more without safe drinking water as pipes burst across the Lone Star State.
