    Do you agree with how MA voted? Do you think every state should have 40 hours of paid sick time for jobs?

    I like it. But it does seem excessive to give 40 hours of sick time to a part time gig...

    Part timers get that? That does seem like a lot for part time.

    If employers factor it in from the get go it's not a huge deal really.

    My boss mentioned it today, and I said well it won't affect us much as most of our employees are PT.. and he said no it applies to PT staff also.

    I'm shocked that you're a mouth breather.

    How about a neck-beard? Got one of those?

    The people that will abuse this sort of thing will be shit employees in other areas and easy to kick to the curb. You almost never find a good, hardworking individual who scams a lot.

    I didn't use much for years. I get 10hrs per month with no cap. I maxed at 1300-ish but have had to use some weeks recently. I'm under 1000hrs now and am panicked. :c























    :yes:
