 I have talked to a lot of people who have been fired from work after they became ill. This is not due to the fact that the boss is worried about catching whatever illness you may have, since most bosses are seldom around anymore, or that your ability to do the work is in any way diminished. It is, however, directly related to the company's health insurance costs and the fact that you are now a liability. And they all seem to have attorneys on board willing to make up some type of mumbo-jumbo excuse that sounds legal. This practice is clearly illegal and a violation of your civil rights, your employment rights, and your human rights. Screw the lawyers. Walk in front of a judge and tell him what happened. Force him to take sides. Than send me your story. I'll be glad to publish it in the name of justice and, if nothing else, a blatant attempt to embarrass the company and the legal system that protects them. Fighting these things alone is difficult and costly. People need to come together to strengthen their position against selfish, cruel, and money-driven business owners. Being profit driven has clouded their humanity. It is time for us to fight back. Unionize, editorialize, and support universal health-care. Why else do you think people with all the money are against these things?
