Why Every Worker Should Have Paid Sick Time

 

Katarina vanden Heuvel recently opinionated in the Washington Post on the importance of paid sick leave for America.  That is correct...the country; not just the workers.

As she correctly noted,"[t]he absence of paid sick leave is a glaring injustice that puts American workers in the distinguished company of workers in Syria, Somalia and North Korea.
