Tardiness on the Rise


In an era where jobs are becoming more and more precious (and conversely, layoffs are becoming more common) – it’s disturbing to think that 1 in 5 workers think so little of their jobs that they’re willing to gamble on being late once a week.

The usual culprits are excuses: traffic, dealing with children or pets, etc.

Jobs are scarce. Workers had better value their job (and show up on time), because there are many people out there who would take that job more seriously.
