I've worked in retail for 7 years and I will never call out without making sure I have my shift covered. It's just not fair to my team. If I'm really sick and I show up to work sick, then they will find someone so I can go home early. If you want to keep a job, you have to consider the entire team.

After you already spread your illness to everyone else. I appreciate when a coworker doesn’t come in when they’re sick. All that does it lead to someone else getting sick and having to call in. It’s a toxic workplace mentality to not allow yourself to stay home when ill.

Its called being responsible and wearing a mask. When you work in a place that only has 10 coworkers total, you quickly realize that the world doesn't adhere to every minor inconvenience.

I don’t work an easy field. 1 person out can run you pretty late to leave. Still stand by my opinion on the matter.

You know no one will die if you call in sick? At the very worst your employer loses some money that day.

Because I work in healthcare and everyone would rather I stay home than getting them all infected.

Also unless you're in full PPE your single mask won't stop them getting sick.
