Thank God that I have a very understanding employer who grants me sick days as well as the opportunity to work from home if I or my child gets sick. But that does not mean I can't sympathize with mothers and fathers who aren't blessed with that ability. Earlier this year I read a blog post on the NY Times website about this very issue and it mentioned parents who would lose their jobs if they didn't show up for work leaving small children home alone with sometimes heart-wrenching consequences. What's good for employees is good for business which is good for the country. Sick days for all are a no-brainer.
