Radio Chaser announces National Sickie Day

Former Assistant Editor

Flu season is well and truly here, and health professionals are calling on employees to stay home rather than bring their sickness to work.

To that end, the guys from Radio Chaser are here to help, launching National Sickie Day.

They’re calling on you to pledge to chuck a sickie this Friday, to help raise awareness for this important cause.

At the time of writing, over 99,000 people have pledged to chuck a sickie.

“We are calling on all able-bodied Australians to join an important public health initiative, pledge their support and chuck a sickie next Friday,” said Charles Firth, executive director of National Sickie Day.

“Who know, there might be a new strain of Ebola that is symptomless until it’s too late. We just don’t know. So it’s best if everyone stays at home next Friday – just in case they’re sick.”

“We have partnered with some of the best-looking stock-photo doctors in the world who probably would endorse this campaign if they knew their image was being used to promote it,” said Mr Firth.

“Now pardon me, I think I might be coming down with something although it might be something so I think I might go home just in case.”

You too can pledge to chuck a sickie here.

This is irresponsible and plays into the stereotype of how lazy Australians are. SCA should not let them do this as it hurts the countries productivity. Radio is already suffering with one, two and three hour shifts. Announcers should all be required to work four hours a day like Kyle and Jackie do. Networks should be getting more bang for their buck not less.
