Slip and Fall in the Workplace is Awkward at Best

It is not easy to make it as an entertainer, so once a performer finds a steady gig, they stick with it. There have been acts playing the same clubs and rooms for years...decades, even. Some travel on a circuit, while others stay transplanted in one spot. It is steady money, and for those who are doing it for the love and not necessarily the glitz and glamour, it is a dream come true. They eventually become local celebrities in their own right.

But, the law does not always see it that way. One major mistake America as a whole makes on a consistent basis is drinking and driving.
