Stand Up For Sick Days
As we certainly know in the midst of this brutal flu season, everyone gets sick. But nearly half of private-sector workers—about 50 million people—in this country don’t get any paid sick days. And nearly 100 million people don’t have paid sick days to care for a sick child. Without a doubt, being able to stay home and rest (without worrying about your paycheck) helps you get better faster. The Healthy Families Act, now being considered in Congress, would guarantee that everyone gets seven paid sick days a year.
