yep, and this is what happened thanks to the new guy. He pissed everybody off by simply coming in with a "no I'll work through it" attitude. Then he got 3-4 others sick, including the boss' boss, who is constantly traveling. This was even after the group basically forced him to go home mid-morning with a "but seriously, don't get us fucking sick" warning.
he's not particularly productive, so we just picked up the slack a little, but knocking the others out really hurt us.
