Haircut and Illness

Why is it that folks who are quite ill and sick feel that it is necessary to go in to work, especially when they work intimately with the public?

I stopped off on the way home for a haircut, since it was getting a bit long and all, and went in to the First Choice HairCutters that I usually frequent. There were two other patrons ahead of me, and I decided to wait (since hair cutting is done in 10 to 15 minutes or so).

However, what irked me is that both employees of the place were quite sick, head stuffed and coughing at times (though always into their sleeves). And both were drinking hot liquids of some sort to try and relieve their throats and all. I've had my flu shot this year, and I decided to take my chances and stay for the haircut, but why the heck do people who are working so intimately with the public go to work when they're this ill? I mean I understand that when you've got a franchise business, like these places are, you have staffing issues, but this is something else.

Just got to hope that I don't catch a bad cold or something now. So, immune system, don't fail me now!
