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.

I agree with getting paid for sick days, but in the UK many companies do pay after the you been sick for 3 days. This obviously allows for people taking the day off, because they phone up claiming to be sick, but in a lot of cases if the truth was known can't be bothered with going to work, in particular a Monday, whereby a lot of people have consumed excessive alcohol over the weekend and do not feel like working as they still have the hangover problem. Other problems occur with very small...

Other problems occur with very small businesses whereby if a person is off sick, then they have to find a worker to cover, normally through an agency, which can be expensive and could cause a lot of problems for these type of small businesses. A lot of people do abuse the system of sick pay, in particular Government agencies, who get paid for sickness from day one, and these places have one of the highest percentage of workers claiming sick pay. There are certainly cases on either side for sick pay getting paid or not, but there will have to be a lot of guide lines to go along with it.

Consider the rights of the mothers from a human point of view and everything will come OK. and most of all let's go for a world where the differences concerning wellbeing are moderated. So cut something from the too higg mountains to fill the too deep pits.
