From the Mouth of -- Wage/Hour Investigator, Retired

The coordinater of FMLA investigations in Salt Lake City before her retirement in 2002, minces few words in responding to a writer who refers to the FMLA as the "Ultimate Slacker's Law". To quote:
I wish I had a dime for every employer who said they couldn't afford to let someone have a few weeks "unpaid" time off because they needed the person at work. However, they had a new vehicle sitting in the parking lot, a motor home parked at their six-bedroom house for a family of four and were building a mountain home as a "getaway."
I am sure she was more restrained in expressing her viewpoint, pre-retirement.
