I am extremely lucky to be in a profession where paid sick days are possible, but I work with someone whose husband was diagnosed with leukemia, and she has been out for months because of that. My sister is nursing her older son through psychiatric problems, and that is an open-ended sort of problem. It is imperative that we have paid sick leave for all, with some guarantee of a job thereafter, so that these people - and I, too, if need be - can care for our families without the severe penalty of losing one's job!
