Ma Bell had a very strict attendance policy that was always enforced. The same policy is still in place within telcos across the nation for all craft job titles. Telco employees were forced to give up their own families and join a new one. Now that a job with a telco is no longer a guaranteed job for life, you'd think they'd ease things up with their attendance policies.

I can remember going to the CO ( 1957 ) and get to see all the operators and go to the back and see all the switches and watch sparks fly . Man , those were the good old days. stub
