    Sick to our stomachs

    Last time at a grocery store I noticed the employees wearing plastic gloves when touching any food items. That is supposed to protect us customers from bacteria. At the same time, these employees sneeze and cough at the food when forced to come sick to work, since they do not get paid sick leave. Personally, I rather would see the bare hands of healthy people on my food than the plastic-clad hands of sick folks. How about you?
