By penalizing people who are actually sick. Imagine you're an FA and you've had perfect attendance until December 31 but then you are actually sick with either the flu or COIVID will that FA do the responsible thing and call in sick and end the possibility of them getting 300% of their pay or will that FA come to work and power through the next 3 days until the end of January 2nd just for the 300% but as a result risk getting others sick.
Also if American is going to offer their flight attendants a 300% incentive what about their remaining frontline employees from pilots to dispatchers even ramp agents all of whom are a necessary piece of AA's operation and would want a 300% incentive as well.
Definitely a slippery slope during a global pandemic to incentivize people to work while sick.
