I am a full time working ...

I am a full time working registered pharmacist. With the shortage of working pharmacist, it is almost criminal to use sick time to take care either my own need or family's need. I can not imagine what would happen if there are no legitimate sick days -- the employer would be even harder on us when time of need arises.

Being in the position of public health provider, I saw many colleague struggles to come to work and spreading the illness to other health care providers or patients. It is an awful situation.

We not only need laws to protect sick days, we also need laws to ensure employer's support with no retaliation when employee takes sick days.
