I BEEN HEARING ABOUT THE RULES AND POINTS WHEN ONE IS SICK OR THE FAMILY THAT NEED ATTENTION IN THE HOPITAL. THE WAY I HEAR IT YOU HAVE TO TAKE POINT FOR ALL OF THESE. JUST STOP AND THINK, JUST HOW THE OFFICE STAFF DO, I AM NOT SAYING THERE IS AWAYS SOME THAT USE THEY VACTION CAUSE THEY JUST WANT A DAY OFF, NO THAT IS NOT RIGHT, BUT AGAIN THERE IS TIME THAT FAMILY NEED THEM AT HOME. IF THE COMPANY HAS PEOPLE THAT JUST TAKE TIME OFF FOR NO REASON, THEN CHECK THERE RECORDS AND FIRE THEM. RUN THE COMPANY AS IT SHOULD BE RUN, THANKS

Isn't this just GREAT. The workers strike and the company just shuts down. This is Republicanism at its finest. We the workers have been getting squeezed hard for the last 8 yrs. They have exported our jobs. Now they {WALL STREET and the big banks} are stealing our money. Next they will have our children in chains, the ones left that have not been killed in Iraq. God Bless America! Is this what our fore fathers fought for?
RISE UP and REVOLT AMERICA before its TOO LATE!!!

I work for a family owned business. We have vacation and are not allowed to use it one day at a time. They actually choose when we take vacation. Is that right? No it isn't. We earned then days and we should be able to take them when we want and when we need. We have no sick days. We do just fine without them. We leave when a family member get sick. We don't get paid for leaving either. We come to work sick just so we can make ends meet. Yes, we give others the flu and colds and feel like an eighteen wheeler has ran us over feeling as if someone has shoved cotton balls up our nose b/c we can't breathe. It's a part of life. Yes, I agree. Companies should give employees sick days. There are some that have sick days that don't use them as sick days and that is wrong. I wish the government could change that. Is it so bad at your work? We are just stronger I guess.
