I’ m sure you have seen on the news lately how people are losing their jobs due to cutbacks, companies going under, etc. Well, the unemployment status just added 8 more people. However, this was not due to the normal causes we hear about.
Eight employees, including nurses were just ﬁred from an Indiana hospital. They were ﬁred because they refused to get the ﬂu shot. I have enclosed a video from Fox News for you to watch.
Nurses Fired for Refusing to Get Flu Shot Speak Out
Yes, there are two sides to the story. The hospital director states that it’s to protect the patients. I agree that everything possible needs to be done in order to protect the patients but where has the freedom of the hospital workers gone?
This reminds me of the incident where a hospital in Texas refuses to hire anyone overweight because it looks bad for health care.
I have included a good link to go to for more interesting information.

Help keep yourself from the ﬂu by washing your hands frequently. If you are beginning to feel sick, stay home from work. I’m sure your boss doesn’t want the ﬂu either.
