Over the last two years, they paid people to stay home for two weeks because their contact tracing app says they were in the vicinity of someone who maybe had covid. We were extremely short-staffed, and I worked through it. We still are short-staffed now, but this is the hill the department has chosen to die on.
In my four years of duty I took only three sick days, two for myself, one for my mom.
I was hailed as a front line hero through the pandemic, now I'm discarded like trash.
Unfortunately I'm in Canada so I don't even have an option to relocate to a State with no mandates because Justin Trudeau won't let the unvaccinated leave the country.
I don't have any other income but I have some savings to last a while. Please pray for me pedes.
