How many second-chances would your boss give you if came to work drunk? Or high on drugs? Thought so. You’d be unemployed. Most businesses today have a zero tolerance policy.
They’re a bit more lenient on public school teachers in Bay City, Michigan. A teacher under the influence of alcohol gets a second chance. And a third.
