Probably, I had 6 months off with my op with no pay, it was a struggle but I had to get well enough before going back otherwise I'd be off again. The system is not good xx

I noticed its very hard finding a job with good benefits these days, just rare to find. I did have one in a Uni and ended up being pushed out cos of my health, could never get another with those benefits since, its such a shame

And what about Mexico? just one day off and the minimum salary? and worse if you are sick at home with flu or migraine, besides the ''minumum' salary I get, then I get reduced the sick days?

Well, that happen in Mexico two.... I was in bed for one week and the social security did not give me a paper to justify all days I spend on bed for being sick, and I did not get paid from work either.... Other times there are some situations where you just stay sick at home and not going to hospital and you are sick and you don't get paid, for example; migraine, diarrea or flu...

This country was built by people who didn't feel well. Go to work people.

yes U.S. needs some responsiblity on gun laws; a total ban on all guns, why is everyone so paranoid?
Police brutality at Anahiem needs to be investigate and indeed police brutality everywhere in U.S. why are the police so brutal and dehumanised ; surely this causes more brutality in society in general.

I agree, All workers who don't get vacation pay or sick pay like me I only get paid when I go to work so if I am sick or take vac. I am not getting paid for that week and its not fair specially if you have so much bills to pay so please consider to have all Americans get sick and vacation pay it will be a great thing for all.

Could not be said better by me! I have family right now that is in the middle of a situation where one partner has been sick for months...lost her job...now my daughter has no time to take off to help her and could lose her job if she did. I remember the struggle that I had myself when my husband was diagnosed with a rare tumor and could not work so HE needed to be paid as I had just had our second child. THIS WAS BACK IN THE 1980's our country really needs to make a lot of major changes...

America back to America the Beautiful and I do not mean beauty as pretty but beautiful because when we are looked at it is with the beauty of what we STAND FOR and the kind of life that everyone deserves. God Bless

Interesting - I live in Canada and I don't get paid sick days. I did get paid sick days when I lived in another province (Ontario), but not here in Saskatchewan. It would be nice though. When you show up for work sick as a dog, not only are you unproductive, but you end up making everyone else sick.
