    It is also how you get fired and I hire your neighbors for the job you did.

    Ray Dolby had a great way of using the "sick day / PTO" subject. He called them what they are "mental health days": you could take as many as you needed, just don't abuse it. Since he's passed away now, I doubt that the company is using this style anymore, but maybe they are.

    If you ran a company - with your attitude - you'd be organized in a heartbeat.
    not really. I am fair and just in my view. if I pay you to do a job I expect you to show up for that job.
    if you call in sick to go protest and you are not sick then that is an fraudulent claim. you can be written up and or fired.

    by calling in sick when you are not you cause way more trouble than what you are worth at that point.
    it means that someone else has to come in and work over time. it means that someone else has to do YOUR work.

    or it means that the people already on have to do double the work to make sure that what you are doing is getting done as well.
    you have become a determent to operational proceedings.

    all so you can be not sick.

    I worked with guys like you. they call in sick when they weren't sick. I had to cover their shift on my days off etc ...

    we should strive for as educated of a population as possible. we all benefit immensely from that.
    That amount of debt is very similar to a typical new car loan, but is likely at a much lower inerest rate and for a longer term.

    One of the basic beliefs of conservatives is that people should look after themselves rather than being dependent on others. Such an attitutde about employment fits that belief well. Those like you who don't believe in personal responsibility wouldn't see that.

    You have to keep in mind that unions are in the decline, not the upswing. Your numbers are dwindling....just like the horse and buggy did.

    you talk as if money just grows on tree's and can be handed like candy. it doesn't.

    if you want to go to college then you need to pay for it just as everyone else had to.
    you're already paying for it. make the investment at the beginning, and you won't have as many people on aid.

    kids will opt for the car, if they can even afford that.

    you know it's madness to put a massive paywall between the student and his or her education or job training. and if you don't know it, you're just flat out wrong.

    it is all based on peak/nonpeak hours. during the holiday it gets even worse.
    Unless you're working at a Wal-Mart in small town America, in some economically repressed town where Wal-Mart is one of the few employers and are partially responsible for competitors closing up shop.

    Sometimes ya just gotta go where the jobs are.

    I have yet to witness this "closing up shop", phenomenon libs are always harping about. Walmart's are usually located in areas where businesses are thriving. How do you account for that?

    Life isn't that black and white. The average person can't just uproot their lives and just move.

    I see. So in your world, "the average person" has to stay where they know there's no opportunity for them. Got it. That's an excellent plan.
