    Really, now can you realistically tell if a person is sick or not? What kind of possible convincing evidence could they have?

    Dems see it as a political ploy. Me too Reps see it the way Burry sees it.

    Not much different than it was a 150 years ago when blacks were slaves to the plantation owners.

    Ths issue here is your silly attempt to justify the behavior of a petulant group of children that just happen to be Union Members.

    Boy are you in the dark on this one. It does not work that way. The contract mandates certain procedures and certain rights for the accused.

    Re: Gov Christie suspends union members for fake calling out sick

    When I worked for a SoCal city, if an employee faked a sick day instead of asking for a personal day, I had the right to fire them on the spot. Once, I did just that. A fellow called in sick during a flood emergency, when the city's pumping stations were in danger of being closed down by inundation (no public water, yo)... and he went to a baseball game.

    Fired the asshole. Filled his job within days.

    Yes, public entities take employee fraud very seriously.
