Bonus: another. “my friend’s work requires a doctors note if you call in sick.”
“Meanwile in Poland such a note is neccessary for every single missed sick day for every person. Milions of people in the waiting rooms each flu season wasting so much time health and money.”
The Walmart solution: “We don’t care if you have a sick note or not, you’re still getting marked off for the absence and penalized if you have too many. You’re free to take an unpaid leave that the federal government mandates we allow you, though! Have fun paying for your medical bills between our shitty pay and shitty insurance!” Note: US taxpayers cover 90% of Walmart employee’s healthcare, because Walmart is too cheap and scroogey to do so.
Relephant bonus: How to work through burn-out when we’re down.
