I get paid time off for sick leave however my husband does not. He works a 60+ work week. Since he is the "bread winner" when he is sick he has to take the time unpaid. Losing just one day is a big hit to his paycheck. When he sprained his ankle he was out 3 days without pay and it was not great. He only gets one week vacation after working for 3 years and gets PTO which is not "paid time off" but is personal time off and is not paid. He gets so "sick" time off. If it happens that he exhausts those hours allotted he get written up with possible termination. Last year he was out one week with swine flu. He received no pay and used up his PTO, then got his letter.
