I need for there to be paid sick days for OTHERS because I have a disabled child. She has a compromised immune system due to the mechanics of her disability. It is often the people who are paid the least and have the fewest perks who have their hands upon my child on a daily basis. What is a mild cold or minor virus to them is a serious health threat to my kid. She has been flown out of state on an emergency helicopter and placed on a respirator for a bad cold. Being able to keep their kids home or being able to stay home keeps others from getting ill.
