  •  what paid sick days? (2+ / 0-)

    People who work in food don't get paid sick days.  They get paid when they can drag their sick asses out of bed and work.

    And we sail and we sail and we never see land, just the rum in the bottle and a pipe in my hand...

    •  My post in poorly worded (0+ / 0-)

      All workers should get paid sick days.  I didn't mean to imply them using something that they don't have.

    •  that's true, especially if you're PT (1+ / 0-)

      If you're one of the very lucky few who works FT and therefore has benefits, then you can afford to take sick time.  In my experience, most (including myself) don't unless we're either bleeding and/or dying because we don't want to leave our coworkers shorthanded.

      Certe, toto, sentio nos in kansate non iam adesse.
