    Something has got to give with work conditions here in the good ol' US of A....
    The abuse of MacD employees is deplorable, but the abuse of lower paid employees pretty much everywhere is unacceptable.
    When did this happen, that if you're sick you don't get to call in sick and get better, ya know, like NOT contagious, without incurring penalties?  Especially handling food.  
    There's a policy at my place of employ that you get to call in sick, but you HAVE to use any vacation (if you have any vacation) time you may have for it, AND you get a demerit point.  Too many demerits and you're out the door....unless they like you.  And do not mention you're taking care of a sick kid...BIG no no.  I suppose we're lucky to have something pretending to be 'sick time', but it comes with lots of strings.

    I think, therefore I am........................... Plus ca change, plus c'est la meme chose....AKA Engine Nighthawk - don't even ask!
