I'm really fortunate because I have paid sick days. But my sister doesn't - and she also gets in trouble with her boss when she takes even unpaid time off. She has two small kids in day care, and so they often have colds and can't be left at day care. Since we live in the same town, I have taken time off to take care of my nieces because my sister can't. We make it work, but I feel so badly for families that have to lose a day's pay because they don't have paid sick days.
