Should I be allowed to leave my workplace because I don't want to do a particular job? Of course not! So why should they be allowed to walk away from their jobs... a job they said they wanted if only we would elect them! Hypocrites!

They lie about illness and should be fired. That's a bad example to set for the kids.

The anti-union bill is wrong; but the lawmakers should be at work FIGHTING it, rather than hiding out in hopes it will go away. They were "hired" by the people to argue for or against bills that come before them ... they should do their jobs.
