Do you go to work sick? One in four Americans do

 That said, there are also a large number of people who actually should stay home from work because they are sick, but they don't, spreading their germs and generally adding to a business' costs and lowered levels of productivity.

According to a new survey, more than one-quarter of American employees -- 26 percent -- go into work when they are sick either because their company does not offer paid sick days or because, if they miss a day, it would be much more difficult to catch up with their workload.

With American employers getting greedier and more exploitative and taking more and more benefits from their workers, going to work sick (for those who have a job) is not a matter of choice but the very thing that may get them fired.  Wake up, people, this is not yo daddy's demokracy anymore.
