Badge for their bad sick days policy!

The New York Times says that, "At Wal-Mart, when employees miss one or more days because of illness or other reasons, they generally get a demerit point. Once employees obtain four points over a six-month period, they begin receiving warnings that can lead to dismissal." That's right, calling in sick gets you a demerit at Wal-Mart.
We think the real demerits should go to Wal-Mart for their sick days policy: It's bad for their employees, customers, and for public health.
