      Maybe the pressure needs to be on employers to provide paid sick time AND employees to stay home, fer cryin' out loud, if they're sick!

          ... but I really wish they'd add the cold season, the strep throat season (which varies, depending on whether one has kids and what school they go to, though winter is the worst), the lice season (usually lice are found at the beginning of the school year, because that's usually when they check for lice) which can keep kids out of school until the problem is resolved, the "stomach virus" season, etc., etc....
