ManateeGag: So you'd rather have someone come in with strep and infect the entire, or if they are in food service, many many more people, than to have them stay home two days and come in when they are no longer contagious?  is that what I'm seeing?

Welcome to Florida. They don't believe in Darwinian evolution, they just practice survival of the fittest.

Soon the 'employee health plan' will consist of a one shot revolver and a tarp.

You better have someone return the gun and tarp though or they will dock your pay posthumously.

organizmx: Flint Ironstag: I'm off work sick at the moment, and coughing violently while infectious, and have visited my doctor three times in the last couple of weeks, so I'm really getting a kick etc.

Thankfully I live in the socialist paradise of Great Britain so I get sick pay and the doctor visits cost me nothing. Each course of antibiotics did cost me $12 though.

How does it feel to not be free?

Like not being "free" to be driven into bankruptcy by medical bills? Like being free from having to choose whether or not to call an ambulance for someone because they might just be really drunk and if I call an ambulance they'll get stuck with a $1000 bill?

I'm also free from having to carry ID when driving, free from having to give my name and address to any cop who asks*, free to video cops with my cellphone*, and cops aren't allowed to lie to me during questioning, I feel quite happy actually.

*Unlike many states in the US.

So then, if it's better to have statewide laws instead of a patchwork of local laws, shouldn't we have federal laws, instead of a patchwork of state laws?

Better yet...BRAINWAVE!...shouldn't we have One World Government?

"If you happen to be an employer who has multiple locations, you can imagine if you had to deal with a patchwork of various regulations. In the local government, it would be a disaster."

Yeah, imagine if there were 50 little fiefdoms who could make up their own regulations.  It would be far better to have one set of laws.

If you get sick, you shouldn't come to work. that would be cruel and unusual, not to mention bad policy. You should simply be fired for cause (getting sick), lose your health insurance, and not receive unemployment benefits. They are lawful, not chaotic, evil

FirstNationalBastard: MaudlinMutantMollusk: The Republican hatred of the working class is absolutely astounding

/they really do want to return to slavery

What the majority of the people who label themselves as Republicans don't seem to get is that they would be the slaves.


And when they are I'm going to fark them beyond measure.

Fine. I'll just come to work and get everyone else sick.

Let the companies do as they will. So long as the executives are equally exposed to the sneezes and germs, I'm all for this. Otherwise, this is class-based discrimination and segregated working conditions.
