I no longer work but whe...

I no longer work, but when I did work and my sons were sick, it was me that had to stay home with them because I wasn't being paid as much as my husband. I never got sick pay. We had to rely on my husbands pay check to fill in the days I had to miss because my sons were sick. We had to go without things to make up for what I would have gotten if I did receive sick pay. It is very hard on parents who don't receive sick pay. The medicine alone cost alot, then you miss 1 maybe 2-3 days without sick pay. That all adds up. If I took too many days then my job was questioned. I was threatened that I would lose my job. I had to make a decision, who was more important. My job or my sons?
