Workers all across the country have to go to work even when they are violently ill. That's because their employers do not provide them with paid sick days off from work.
Without paid sick time, workers can pose serious public health risks as they serve you dinner or care for your children.
In many cases that means risking losing their job if they have to call off. And for many middle-class and low-wage earners, this simply isn't an option.
