Agreed. That is why my boss and I will spend at least 12 hours each working this weekend to meet our client’s need. But we will do it from our homes.

Anything that requires the following is NOT a “basic need”:
CONSEQUENCES OR ACCOUNTABILITY FOR FAILURE IN EITHER OF THE ABOVE.
obama loves "flexibility":
-- he promised "flexibility" to Putin
-- he's "flexible" with laws
-- he's "flexible with moral standards
-- he's "flexible" with facts
and he's really "flexible" with the truth

The FMLA is one of the most singular insane laws imposed on Americans -- ever.
It is the subject of considerable abuse -- and creates enormous chaos in the workplace.

He’s never worked a day in his life, so how would he know ?
He says somethings wrong when hard workers must choose between work and family. Isn't the new family of choice the one that picks their kids up from the corner market?

(This is an insult to the nation's intelligence and these days, that isn't easy.)
Yes; either husband or either wife can do the picking up.

What work? Hoot mon, gotta make those tee times! Go. Play.
And private business can meet employee needs far more humanely and efficiently than you, Mr. Obama. Please butt out...
