With government killing business by requiring mandatory health care, mandatory sick days, and many other perks for employees (maybe salary indexation in the future), what do you think of a candidate who would say, during a job interview:
- I have never taken a sick day over the last 10 years. If I feel I could be contagious, I will call my manager and work from home - I was never sick to the point that I could not work efficiently. I will cost you $0 in sick days.
- I will waive my rights to get health insurance: I haven't used it (not even one time) over the last 10 years, never visited a doctor over the last 10 years, and anyway I am insured through my wife's job. I will cost you $0 in health benefits.
- I will not use 401K plans and other stock options. I'm out of the stock market, for good. I will cost you $0 in stock plan related expenses.
Assuming a candidate would tell these facts to a recruiting manager, and that these facts are indeed true, would it help the candidate compete against competition, in particular against people who desperately need health insurance and other benefits?
