As many of you know, I have the flu. The flu season has hit earlier than normal and I must tell you, this is one nasty bug!
I am one of a few who have had the flu at work recently. The main person infecting everyone, is the person who came to work while still sick.
I understand that you need the money.
I understand that calling out is frowned upon.
I understand that you think you feel ok enough to work.
Still, IF YOU ARE SICK, STAY HOME FROM WORK.
I have gone to work sick, that was because my job was threatened and this was when I had no health insurance. I went to work, and sat in a corner away from everyone the entire shift.
Employers need to stop threatening their employees.
Employers need to stop forcing their sick employees to work.
Employers need to encourage sick employees to stay home.
The only thing having a sick employee at work does is infect others.
This is why I am sick.
