runwiz: This isn't a problem in countries with universal national health insurance and mandatory paid vacations. But this is America.


This is probably outdated but not only does America suck donkey balls with their version of Healthcare, Workers Rights and Time Off the geographically closer your country is to America the shiattier your amount of days off are compared to other civilized countries.

Nadie_AZ: Amazon, Microsoft, Alphabet, Apple, AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile and other monopolies are watching this with interest.


You literally put AT&T, Verizon, and T-Mobile, all competitors, in a sentence calling them "Monopolies".

And that's know how I know that you don't actually know what a Monopoly is....

SpaceyCat: I know it's against most corporate policies to just follow the farking law, but really.  Spending all that time and money to try to skirt the law is still less expensive than just doing it?  The penalties need to change so that it becomes more expensive for companies to break the law.


Not always about the cost of it.  You give in and let the employees have medical benefits and PTO and they may start demanding more things.  Best to squash that as hard as possible now no matter the cost before it gets out of hand.  Like when Walmart shutdown a bunch of stores for "plumbing problems" right when their staff was trying to unionize.  Take the financial hit upfront before the drones start acting like they deserve basic human treatment.
