Without paid sick days I ...

Without paid sick days I wouldn't be able to work! Everyone gets ill and some time or another and it is not fair to have to choose between going to work ill, infecting co-workers, or to stay home and lose pay and possibility of losing the job. Currently my employer provides 6 sick days per year yet does not provide the option for taking sick time without pay if needed beyond the 6. This posses a major problem because 1 major bout of the flu will typically drain the 6 day bank, therefore the remainder of the year you have to pray the you or your child does not fall ill.Companies should provided the option to EARN sick time as opposed to not providing or limiting the amount. It should also provided the opportunity for carry overs of earned sick time.
