I have found over the yea...

I have found over the years that there is too wide a variety of policies about sick days for people who work for an hourly wage regardless of where they work. Some places alow you to take a sick day when your child is sick and others do not. People hvae to work to take care of themselves and their families but they also have to care for themselves and loved ones when they become ill! I resent it when co-workers come to work sick because they are "saving" their sick days for when their children are sick-but I understand this. It just needs to change and be realistic for todays working families. Companies need tos how respect for their employees and their families-school systems too! Currently I have the opportunity to earn sick days every month of service. I am also able to convert a sick day to a personal day with a written with reasonable notice. I really appreciate it!
