Kallie, there's no question that your complaints are legitimate.

: i work at mcd's in iowa and i've had friends try to call in sick but the mgr. won't let them cause otherwise they'd be understaffed, so he was forced to go to work with a 104 temp.
Kallie, there's no question that your complaints are legitimate. Nor
is this some isolated case. Whenever you work for someone who's number
one concern is to make profits for himself, conflicts are bound to arise as the drive for private gain pushes aside human rights standards, social concerns of the workers (which they consider to be a "cost" that should be reduced as much as possible), and environmental health. The question is are you willing to join forces with organizations whose values stand in their way?
