What do you guys think should happen when a person's weight interferes with their ability to do their job?
For example, if you are working in a supermarket or something stacking shelves, and you're required to lift quite heavy boxes, or fill the bottom shelves, do you think it's fair for overweight people to be able to get out of doing these aspects of their job as they struggle to do it?
Or what if they are often sick from work with weight related problems? I'm thinking maybe back pain as an example.
I'm also talking purely about people that have no medical reason for their weight.
I'm also not trying to pick on overweight people..........I'm just curious to know whether people find it a valid reason for not pulling their weight (no pun intended!) in the workplace.
