    people only getting sick for four days, but then taking the last one anyway as some kind of... personal day? it's fucking outrageous!

    sick days are "bad for business", which is just terrible, as opposed to a lack of sick days being bad for workers, which is desirable because you squeeze more productivity out of them by denying them paid time for when they get sick like the filthy plebs they are.

    Banking on the American people to be able to sort all this out and declare the adult in the room the winner is a very big bet. -Digby

      does so much for increasing productivity and acts as an enormous morale booster.
