Now companies are worried about people coming in sick
Historically, when you tried to call off work because you were puking green, had a virus, some kind of injury, or another crisis (like say family emergency or your town is flooded in nine feet of water) there would often be that boss who would give you hell. Yeah, THAT boss.
Bullshit like -
"What do you MEAN you are sick? What do you MEAN you were hurt and are now in a full body cast and cannot move? Well if you do not come in today, don't bother coming back.
Well my house and car are underwater and I managed to make it to work. We will send a helicopter to come get you.
Your entire family died today? What does that have to do with making it to work? Our new baby was kidnapped by terrorists yesterday but I didn't just call in."
Just total horse shit and assuming you were BS'ing.
But NOW that there is this silly-ass covid 19 thing going, suddenly they are paranoid about sick people going to work. They do not want it spreading. They sure as shit stinks didn't care in the past how others' illnesses might affect others. No, just get your lazy ass to work!
I will be the first to admit this - Unless I am unable to even get out of bed or stand up for more than two minutes, I would still go to work. I have been conditioned that illness and injury are no excuse for missing. Yeah there are paid sick days but I try to save those.
