Wisconsin Teachers Are Sick

Doctors handing out "sick" notes for union protestors


Via The MacIver Institute, fake doctors’ notes are being handed out at Wisconsin union rally. As tens of thousands of public employees skipped work this week to attend protest rallies outside the Wisconsin State Capitol, many wondered if they would face any disciplinary action for unexcused absences.
“I asked this doctor what he was doing and he told me they were handing out excuses to people who were feeling sick due to emotional, mental or financial distress,” said Christian Hartsock. “They never performed an exam–he asked me how I was feeling today and I said I’m from California and I’m not used to the cold, so he handed me a note.”  One protestor said, “We’re sick and tired of Scott Walker.”  One doctor stated, “We are providing sick notes for work so people can have excuses for work. We are supporting employees that have been mentally anguished this week.”
Yes, the union teachers are not doing their jobs because they are emotionally and financially distressed.  And the State of Wisconsin is financially distressed as well.  I suggest the teachers act like grown-ups instead of children.  Get back to work and deal with the fact that cuts have to be made.

Freaking unbelievable.
Doctors lose their licenses for doing crap like that. Is the Wisconsin Medical Society going to do anything about this??

I don’t think this is what they had in mind when they created the “Doc fix.”
Here’s their rallying flag.

The doctors are a disgrace to the medical profession. Concerned citizens should collect their names and turn them over to the Wiscnsin State Licensure Board. They are required to investigate all complaints. This should bring these docs down a notch or two when they have to go before a group of their colleagues to explain their dishonest prescribing. Also, all doctors that I know have a very short fuse when it comes to anyone supporting anything this so-called buffoon of a president is for.

I with with Human Resources, and I would be on each and every employee. Requiring them to seek a second opinion (even if it’s at the cost of the school). When does FMLA come in to play? In Illinois, anything over 3 days missed has to be used towards FMLA, which would require a medical certification of an illness or injury that is requiring the employee to be off work. Also, if I received a note from a doctor that I knew was on the street corner making up excuses for absences, I would certianly question that. What are the… Read more »
