Question and answer
Think about an unethical business practice that you (or someone you know) have encountered at a small business. Describe the situation, what happened, and why do you think the practice was
unethical.
The 89 day wonder. Got its start here in Vegas in the casino industry, but has since spread to other types of businesses. It works like this. [ [ You have a 90-day probationary period for new hires, at the end of which, those new hires will become eligible for health insurance benefits. You hire people, then, a day, or a few days, before that probationary period ends, you let them go in order to
avoid paying said benefits. Alternately, you hire a bunch of people at the beginning of the busy season, then you cut them loose at the end because they "aren't meeting the standards of service". Nice way to get temporary help without having to pay extra by hiring people through an agency. ] ]

User: Describe your reaction, what did you do as a result of the unethical practice (such as quit shopping at that business, told others, filed a formal complaint, etc.)

Weegy: I am a school nurse. After a few years, I met my teacher (a registered nurse) way back to college. I personally do not like her because she is strict and firm in teaching and almost all of my classmates do not like her as well. She is so bossy. [ I found out that she is a biology teacher in my school. There is this student who is unwell and my assessment is that she is experiencing hyperventilation. My ex teacher helped her and she was instructing me what to do. I know for myself what to do. She do it in a bossy way. I like to remind her that she is a teacher in school not a school nurse though she's also a nurse. She do it for how many times now. She must be sensitive in her words and the way she delivered it. It's okay to help but she can do it in a nice manner. She must also know her job description that she is a teacher in school not a school nurse. Her job is to teach. ]
