crap jobs

So I started and quit my job all in the same day. I was hired as a medical courier which was fine and dandy until I found out they didn't supply any protection at all. No gloves, lab coats, vaccinations nothing all for 9.00 bucks an hour. I was just trying to help hubby out until I finished my degree but HIV, hepatitis b, and whatever other shit I was coming in contact with wasn't worth it especially not to bring it home to my family. I'm still disinfecting stuff and uncomfortable. I didn't go back at all especially because they laughed when I asked for gloves when I picked up someone's infected toe in a leaking jar. I'm even thinking about going to my doctor for a blood panel just to be sure. So what kind of crappy jobs have y'all had?

from OSHA

Personal Protective Equipment

Q28. Who is responsible for providing PPE?

A28. The responsibility for providing, laundering, cleaning, repairing, replacing, and disposing of PPE at no cost to employees rests with the employer. Employers are not obligated under the standard to provide general work clothes to employees, but they are responsible for providing PPE. If laboratory jackets or uniforms are intended to protect the employee's body or clothing from contamination, they are to be provided at no cost by the employer.

They all had protective gear except me and the other two drivers I don't see how that's right.
