But why, though?A defense company telling employees to "use their vacation days" would be a problem.
I have no idea. There were times when work was called off due to weather. We didn't get paid for no work, but also not being at work wasn't counted against you. No one ever complained.
This is probably closer to my life experience.
I've shown up to job sites and been told we couldn't work. Material wasn't there, GC called work off due to weather (and fears of being sued for cold weather injuries), or maybe other subs weren't done with their shit yet and we couldn't start. Maybe the company could shift you to another job, but a lot of the time...it was just "See y'all whenever"
I get that a lot of people were probably scared of not having income during a disaster (that's fair) but how is that the fault of the company, though?
So, this is where I saw the link for the article I posted above. Read the comments here...this is the kind of stuff I've been seeing. So many people have been talking like this since the weather hit, that it just keeps bugging me. Like...I just can't wrap my head around it. I mean, FFS, I am a Liberal myself...and I still don't fucking get it.
Is wanting handouts from the Gov't not enough anymore? Now employers should just start giving out handouts? Employers need to be responsible for their employee's welfare?
