Best Cure for the Flu:
Stay Home

Oct 3, 2016

Speaking of the flu, a new study showed that the number of flu cases drops a lot in cities that pass laws mandating a paid sick leave. In other words, where more companies don’t offer paid sick leave, more workers feel forced to go to work sick and spread the disease to their co-workers and customers.

No worker needs a survey to know that you should stay home and rest when you are sick. It’s our bosses who always put pressure on us not to take sick days.
