    Japan (I don't know Australia)

    In Japan, the burden of health insurance is spread broadly throughout the society.  In this country, it falls almost entirely on the employer, thus the employer has greater reasons to pay for sick leave.

    You have exactly 10 seconds to change that look of disgusting pity into one of enormous respect!

      Since every other employer has to pay too, I'm not sure what you're bitching about.

      If they can pay sick time for their employees, you can too.  And if they can and you can't, then you won't be around much longer anyway.
