Coughing Co-Workers Unwanted At Offices
Roswell, GA -- American workers are facing flu season this year with a short supply of flu vaccines -- but they're not too worried.
According to a survey of U.S. workers by office tissue supplier Kimberly-Clark Professional, only nine percent are "very worried" about the vaccine shortage and 31 percent aren't worried at all.
That doesn't mean they want to get sick. The poll shows 34 percent of folks think employees who show up to work hacking should be sent home by the boss. Three percent go so far as to say coughing co-workers should be isolated in a special sick room.
-- 37 percent steer clear of colleagues who come to work ill, but 15 percent talk to co-workers about how that person should have stayed home and two percent give the sickie the "evil eye."
-- Finally, 35 percent say the germiest spots in an office are the phones, while 29 percent pick the doorknobs.
