Re: Pet peaves

I don't know if this is a "pet peeve," but I am certainly peeved!

ODS works as a waiter. He is paid $2.50/hr plus tips. He's scheduled for less than 20 hours/wk because they don't want to pay benefits.

He got sick on Friday. Typical upper respiratory virus with laryngitis. He called out sick. It was his first time calling out sick.

He has to produce a doctor's note, not to show that he's well enough to return to work, but to prove that he was sick. It's company policy.

He went to the doctors. It's a virus. Let it run its course. It cost him $20. Had he not had insurance, the visit to the doctor to get a note would have cost him $120. Add on to that lost wages.

Now I'm wondering if we should eat at that restaurant because the effect of this policy is to make sick people come in and work with food.

Ewww.
