Yeah, well, you're probably on the mark with that one, Kat. As greedy as
Corporate USA is, at the moment, nothing would surprise me. There's too
much emphasis on productivity and not enough on quality. You can't line
some rich Philistine's pockets QUICKLY, if you offer quality over quantity.
Color me cynical.

Subject: Re: Illness in the Workplace
My attendance this past year was not the best due to surgery and the
process, but I've been reassured it will not be counted against me in my
performance review next month. I do do rather well compared to some of my
co-workers who seem to live for vacation days.
As for the article, I'm not scared so much as a bit nervous at the door
opening to a wider interpretation of productivity vs. time on the job. What
"illness" were expanded to include disabilities? What would happen to those
who have to take time off for doctor's visits or therapies, etc.?
