Wal*Mart spreads H1N1


"... employees of the Arkansas-based retail giant -- even its food handlers -- feel they have no choice but to work when they're sick. That's because the company gives workers demerits and deducts pay for staying home when they're sick or caring for sick children."
I think it might be a good idea to do your shopping in Real Stores for a while, folks...

No way, is this true?! Wow, and I thought my old job was bad. I had chicken pox once (sadly caught it as an adult, so it was pretty bad) and my boss wouldn't have it. I rarely ever took a sick day off but he was so upset. He made me come in and give him a note from my doctor (my face was covered in spots and I was a total mess). This was a pharmacy store, too. I honestly think someone shouldn't be a manager (or in charge) until they've served at the bottom. You need to know where your employees are coming from first.
