    Your version of standard business policy BTW attracts an organizing drive. People don't want to have to put up with management thuggery. People deserve better.
    Yes, but your idea of "management thuggery" does not comport with reality.

    Do you think not showing up for work or calling in sick is perfectly okay? How is it "management thuggery" to expect your employees to show up for work? Personally, I would probably cut an employee some slack a couple of times, but if he/she made a habit of not showing up to work or calling off, they would need to be let go. Do you disagree?
    Dude, I worked for over thirty years with sick days.

    "I won't be in tomorrow, I have some business".

    "Do you have enough time?"

    "Yeah, I have 10 days left"

    "Okay; have a good day".

    (Use'em or lose'em)

    Management thuggery sets up draconian rules like you are referring to: "miss one day of work and you're fired!" What kind of cap is that? Non union companiens have PTO, so you're just making it up as you're going along I think.

    it is only in the contract if the business agree's to it. sick days are to be used as sick does not protest days or anything else.
    nope using a sick day to protest is fraud.

    nope most companies have the same policy and people are fine it with. companies got tired of people abusing sick days and then needing off when they were really sick.

    Did you even read my post? Did you accidentally quote me? Because your response has nothing to do with what I posted.

    I liberal utopia I suspect you would be subsidized with taxpayer dollars. Oh wait, we already have that. But only for certain sectors that pass the lib smell test, like "green" energy. No soup for Walmart!!!

    you have no clue about what you are talking about.

    most companies do not have PTO time only a few here and there. most have vacation/personal/sick.
    what you mentioned would be personal time not sick time.

    sick time is reserved for being sick.

    you not calling into work in any company is grounds for termination union or not.

    Why don't you get a job that pays better than the one you have now?
