I'm a FIFO HCW. Every time there's an outbreak I don't get to go home.
Mate it's not that the kids have no resilience, a big part of it is they aren't hopeful for their futures.
I work in health. Pre-covid I would always work while sick, at least as long until a replacement was available, now with covid the only option is to go off work sick and get a swab. Managers are complaining about us all taking more sick leave. Yet if we dared continue to work without getting a swab that would not only be dangerous, we would be condemned if we later returned a positive.
Some people are flakey because of big things in their life. Some of my friends are super flakey, and it is definitely annoying, but I recognise their flakiness often also causes them distress.
