Tips on going back to work, with some exposition. Also, 7 other things worth knowing today.
Working a 32-hour week, as proposed in CA? Yikes! That would be fantastic! My working life up until Covid was always a 40-hour week (in the Northeast). A 32-hour week seems like vacation. We should make that nationwide, then, maybe, we’d be more civilized and could follow Ms Fox’s advice because we’d be less stressed.
I would want to be aware of the vaccination status of anyone with whom I had to work closely. I wouldn’t care how that happened, I should have the right to a reasonable expectation of a safe work environment.
In many indoor locations states require a business to post signs regarding not having concealed weapons if that is their position. As we have also know, HIPPA does not apply to vaccine status so there is no issue in that regard. I would be required to use safety glasses in known risky conditions so what is the difference when it comes to vaccine status?
Here is another example of the impact of risky behavior. Did you know….
“In some states, you can be charged with a crime if you don't tell your partner your HIV status, even if you used a condom or another type of protection and the partner does not become infected.May 15, 2017”
As for politeness I guess nobody has been to Montreal (non french speaking) and asked for directions.
I was born and raised in California and am now retired. This is the dumbest thing to be considered during a labor shortage. Overtime after 32 hours? These costs will be passed on to customers and consumers. I can just see employers abandoning California in droves.
How about a story on the recent trend of rudeness and hostility? From airline customers to….article writers.
A quirky folk singer named Christine Lavin found a Readers Digest story of an experiment to find the most polite city in the world. Things like approaching a building’s sidewalk door with arms full of packages snd seeing how long it took for some stranger to open the door.
The winner was New York City, which Lavin, a long time New Yorker, gloats about in the song. (or would gloat but that, she says, would be impolite.)
It can be found, besides streaming, with a YouTube search of “Christine Lavin Polite”
