I understand that people need to work to make a living. Unfortunately, here in the states that really doesn’t afford us any downtime when sick and unless we have vacation days to take we take a hit on payday. Our janitor came to work sick 3 days in a row…he touches EVERYTHING and now 3 other people and myself have the stomach flu. I have vacation days that I’m now forced to use so I can pay bills rather than actually using it for something let’s say more relaxing. I wish we at least got sick days but the company I work for isn’t compassionate like that.
