Sick People Should Stay Home

Here I am finally trying to eat right and exercise and I get sick. I am sick because my boss (who is salaried and can stay home when he's sick) won't stay home when he's sick because he thinks the place can't run without him. So now I'm sick and I can't afford to take days off because I don't get sick days. I know that your job doesn't want you to take sick days, but if you're really sick, STAY HOME! We don't want whatever you have. But no. You come to work sick so you can save your sick days for those beatiful days when you just don't feel like coming to work. No wonder companies don't give sick days anymore. I won't be staying home.....I need my 40 hours. My boss, on the other hand, should have stayed home until he knew he wasn't contagious. There are 3 of us who work in that office together, so I know Bill (my co-worker) is probably gonna get it too. And he won't stay home either because he needs his 40 hours. So Sick People, please stay home. Take pity on those of us who can't.

I agree...if you're sick and have something that others can catch...then stay home until you're not contagious.

Hope you get feeling better soon Bonnie.

Hey Bonnie ... I really hope you feel better soon.

I thought it was a law to give sick days!! You might want to check into that. One sick day every three months. I am pretty sure it is a law!!!

Judi, I wish you were right. Not in Florida. It's a right to work state which means you have the right to work, but they have the right to fire you for no specific reason. Florida laws are very different from other states. I think because we have such an influx of people. Even our wages are low. Our benefits are pretty much non existant. We just accept our paychecks and do what we're told so that they don't replace us with someone else. Sad part is I work for the #1 Security company in this country and I have no benefits...imagine what the other companies pay or supply as benefits. At least in January I become eligable for a weeks vacation (unless they change that benefit too) Thanks for all your well wishes everyone. Today I'm still feeling pretty crappy but hopefully I'm on the mend. I DID take today off from work. Tomorrow is a different story. Have a great day everyone and when I'm feeling better I will get back to Blogsville.
