I just spoke with a guy I have known for around 25 years.|
He had a health event about 3 months ago.
He had a decent health plan so it has not broken the family yet, but he is being told to come back to work or he will be let go and is afraid to fight anything since it would be instant financial death if he is let go.
He looks like walking death and has no energy at all. Doesn't look to me like he should working.
He has a couple of kids and his father has cancer 2nd time and it's bad.
He is just tired of the whole deal.
I have had many similar type conversations in the past 6 months or so.
Many people are hanging by a thread and staying at their job only for the insurance. They are being browbeaten and forced to work harder and longer for less and less.
I wonder how many there are like this and how much more of this they will/can take.
