He looks kind of ill here—maybe because he was? The whole crew of Apollo 7 got head colds on orbit & ended up being grouchy at Houston.

The crew even went so far as to insult the intelligence of some mission controllers on open-communication channels!

Possibly due to this, no crew member of Apollo 7 ever flew in space again. This wasn't the last time a flight crew got "blacklisted" either.

The all-rookie crew of Skylab 4, after discovering they were being secretly monitored & pushed to work 16 hour days mutinied after 6 weeks.

The first (and only) worker's strike in space didn't come out of the blue—William Pogue tried explaining the crew's issues to Houston.

Hearing this, mission control, rather confused at these issues—and in typical neoliberal fashion—thought the crew must be lazy or depressed.

NASA didn't inform the crew they could hear what was going on in Skylab. One crew member vomited (a normal reaction) (1/2)

Hopefully you have read Clay Anderson Astro biography, where he discusses the persistence of scheduling issues.

I haven't! I will be sure to pick it up. Thank you! I knew that scheduling was still a major issue but haven't read recent accounts.
