Wellness & Well-being Highlights
Week of November 19, 2023
This week’s edition of our Worker Wellness & Well-being blog consists of topics concerning how the gap has widen between men and women’s life expectancy (mainly due to the opioids crisis) to labor’s return of utilizing the Social Gospel to a plea for those of you over the age of 40 who played tackle football or soccer (at ANY level) to participate in a survey. Today, I wish to shed some light on the topic of the misconduct in our nation’s capital. Whether it is a Congressman misusing campaign funds for personal grooming or Congressmen pushing and stoving in the hallways or a US Senator challenging a witness to a fist fight during a recent hearing, I would say third-graders do not even act this immature…but that would be an insult to third-graders! A true leader leads by example. And, let’s not forget that leadership begins at the top. To this end, we have more than one US Supreme Court Justice who has played fast and loose with what is legal vs what is ethical regarding the taking “gifts” from “donors” whose cases may one day appear before them. Allowing this bad behavior to continue without establishing laws with severe consequences does little to invoke confidence in the large, lower echelon of our increasingly haves and have-nots’ society. Closing thought: What would have our forefathers said about those people entrusted with enforcing rules not being held to the same standard? Possibly: “…when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.”*
