I have lost several jobs ...

I have lost several jobs because of not having "sick days". It seems as soon as you become a mother you become a plague in the work force. With no sick days you might as well just stay at home and forget about working. Even when an employer gives you sick days they are never enough especially when your child is sick. Schools and day cares do not want them there and employers frown at you when you need leave work. Employers have no respect for family these days. Yes this is a right-to-work state; however, that was just a fancy name for, "help us cover up the discrimination in our work force". Without sick days, I have gone to work sick and lost everything I owned because I lost so many jobs. I even had to give my kids up to another family member for over a year until I found a new job and home. Now that I have sick days (6 a year), they are gone before the summer is out forcing me to take vacation days for any of my appointments. Thus meaning no vacations for me, just piled on stress. Hell I am surprised I havent already lost this job. I think they keep me around because my children are older now.....how pathetic! The value of my family through the employer/government's eyes.
