How to ruin your life in one single move.

Georgia has been working overtime these past few months.

This pandemic has really brought out how fundamentally stupid this country is. The people licking stuff at stores. Really? Stay at home and stay safe is too much to bear?

To what end? What did he gain? It sounds like he worked at a plant, and in my experience, no work=no pay. Unless the company said they would pay you if you caught the Rona.

Which if thats the case, the story could have been assed to mention it.

That didn't mention motive at all

The previous month, Attorney General William P. Barr instructed prosecutors across the country to crack down on a variety of scams from people seeking to take advantage of the public health crisis for their own gain.

Always check the dates on your fraud forms.

no one else sees this for what it is nor will they do anything but laugh when I tell the truth. This story is only being published to make an example of anyone seeking a covid test. This is saying that if you are an employee and only 'feel sick' or in fear of your life you have to go to work. This is saying if you get sick, you will be blamed for "polluting" the workplace with your sickness. This is saying to just work until you die, do not say you are sick, ad do not get tested or report it.

This is Barr saying that you will be prosecuted if you don't work yourself to death.

Anyone saying "wear a mask" and not seeing this for what it is and speaking up is a farking hypocrite.

Wow. That's a pretty nice spin there, but I'm really a sucker for the stories that address specifics. Do you say that his test results were real but the doctor recanted after his family was threatened, or did the government hack the system to change the results themselves?

Wow, for once it's not Florida. I'm so happy.

Not sure who the fark upvoted your exceedingly moronic post, but the worker faked a letter from his doctor that said he tested positive for COVID 19.

Why did he do it? Probably to not go to work and still get paid.

Authorities did not identify the business by name but described it as a Fortune 500 company with a facility in the Atlanta area.

Well, that certainly narrows it down.

Wonder why within the first few comments we didn't have the standard Fark drivel about it was probably a MAGA red hat Trumper muh freedoms bootlicker?

You are correct sir! I sit here, drinking my refreshingly sweet bottle of Coca-Cola and contemplate what possible Fortune 500 company that has a plant in the Atlanta area could be affected by this....
