In Helena, Mont., workers at the city's Child Support Enforcement Division received new computers. But some of those computers didn't have popular games — like Solitaire and Minesweeper — on them. The workers complained about receiving "deficient" computers.

While one division chief initially was willing to install the games in an effort to treat workers equally, a director higher up had a different response.

She had the games removed from all 3,000 computers at the state's Human Services Department.
