Everyone gets sick it's only human.. We should get paid working a full time job for sick pay not everyone plans on being sick and we deserve the right working so hard to have help paying for the bills..

Paid sick days is a benefit, not an entitlement. Federal government does outline a law under the Federal Leave time to care for family members for those of you speaking about taking care of yoru children. If they are disabled or seriously ill, you can use it. As for yourself look into Short term disability or long term disability insurance at your company and use it or if they offer it, sign up and pay for it, so that when you are seriously sick and need to take off from work, then you will...

As for yourself look into Short term disability or long term disability insurance at your company and use it or if they offer it, sign up and pay for it, so that when you are seriously sick and need to take off from work, then you will still get paid. The American citizen should NOT have to cover the expense of paying for people taking off work because they are sick and wanting to get paid for it and niether should companies. It is proven fact that if a person, gets the correct amount of sleep, eats heallthy foods and a healthy diet, exercize, and balanced life, you will less likey to get sick anyway. So take better care of yourself and you will miss less work and be more productive to climb that corporate ladder.

I live in Britain and I think you need to know that we have no such security here in Britain either. I'm an American living abroad and I am ashamed that my country could be this backward!

There are some interesting comments posted here. Everyone is entitled to theirs. I do think though that workers should be entitled to sick time when sincerely ill.
Problem lies with workers/people abusing the system and draining the funding for time off /sick.

All full time positions come with paid vacations. If sick leave are not available, one is usually allowed to use up the vacation period. For the business, its the bottom line; its either paid vacation or less pay - may a choice. One must note that the working hours are 40 hours a week five days a week. This is great as compared to several countries where 60 hours and 6 day week is common. One gets used to it. If you think you deserve more pay or paid benefits, you got to work for it. Lets not become socialists and mess ourselves up.
