I used to have a great job with paid sick days. I am now self employed and do not have paid sick days or paid vacation, but that was my choice. The freedom I have being self employed gives me the ability to be with my kids when I need or want to be. I don't believe paid sick days should be something legislated by goverment. I think if someone wants paid sick days and doesn't have them, they should hit the pavement and start looking for a better job that provides it. Goverment shouldn't force small business owers to provide paid sick days, paid vacation or health care! What the goverment can do is lower the tax burden on families so that mom's don't have to work or can afford to work part-time so that they are available for their children when the need arises.
