  1. Ease up with the sound effects. Give the guy a day off. Playing the news in the background and hearing your tones in beyond annoying. The news does not need sound effects.

  2. Why would you skip work over a cold?

  3. I guess kinda, couple of times, I have looked at upon myself and pondered that, it would not be healthy if someone would, but I’m not going to stop, just because of any so.

  4. The other country intentionally decided to not make your baby formula for child slave wages.

  5. Why am I still filling out a Covid consent form for work everyday ? When it makes no difference – MONTHS AGO

  6. They make us as restaurant workers spend 500 minutes per year filling out a covid consent form everyday .. Even if I answer having symptoms makes no difference .. Far past I have been Covid sick and still went because our job they don't have a number I can call to inform a manager I am sick . The restaurant number sends me to an out of state call center

  7. Females should not be allowed in leadership positions

  8. Wow did a private company choose profit over actual goals again? How can this be when privatisation is sooooooooooo good?

  10. When money minds don't take the Hippocratic Oath…. Disaster to doctors and healthcare.

  11. I can attest to this. I work for a hosptial. Got covid on a Tuesday and my occupation health department said i can't come back till Monday. Manger found i had a shift on Saturday and all of the sudden it was fine for me to come back Saturday.

  12. Wait? Why is this a surprise? I was told from day one by my own doctor and nurses NOT to come in unless life threatening. This is old news.🤨

  13. I hope their lawsuit is successful.

  15. We all know that greedy politicians will never support the worker over profit

  16. Pretty sure the lobbyist are reigning in congress just fine. You'll never see real change in guns, privatized medical and insurance or anything that goes against our most influential citizen…. the corporation. Side effect of capitalism.

  17. I'm now glad I stopped being a nurse a long time ago. I was always back and forth if I should go back. Not now.
