The Good Ol’ Days Are Gone
It wasn’t too long ago that you could go into your local grocery store, pick out all the groceries you need, and instead of paying cash right away, you simply put it on your tab to be paid later. That was back when a person’s word was as valuable as the money in their bank account. People trusted and looked out for one another, doing the right thing even when it was tough.
As an employee, you were part of that business’s family, and family always took care of their own. Unfortunately, the workplace has changed significantly over the past few decades. Nowadays, it’s all about the bottom line. Whereas it used to be understood that someone injured on the job would be taken care of, whether or not the employer had insurance to cover it, today, nothing is understood except that you can’t expect your employer or their insurance company to do the right thing.
