The language is tough but the message is simple and important.
With Perth suffering one of its worst flu seasons on record, mix94.5’s The Big Breakfast has joined forces with some of Australia’s biggest stars, to encourage workers to Stay the F**k at Home (if you’re sick)!
Nic Naitanui, Nat Fyfe, Matt Preston, Dennis Cometti, Eskimo Joe’s Kav Temperley and more feature in a special #StaytheFkatHome video, along with mix94.5’s Clairsy, Matt & Kymba.
In less than 24 hours, the video has had almost 40,000 views and been shared almost 1,000 times on Facebook alone.
The ‘Stay the F**k at Home if You are Sick’ campaign aims to make an impact with the censored language of well-known personalities, in order to gain attention for the serious flu issue in Perth.
It’s about changing the culture of sickness in the workplace, from boss to employee, while highlighting the imbalance in sick leave laws for casual and contracted employees in particular.
The Western Australian Department of Health reported this week, that there have been 12,768 laboratory-confirmed influenza notifications – up from 1,507 at the same time last year.
#StaytheFkatHome coincides with The Chaser’s light hearted Triple M sickie day campaign.
