How many times have you still gone into work even though you were sick because you needed the money?
While some Americans are able to work from home or can take a sick day, most Americans cannot. Many Americans currently live paycheck to paycheck and a taking a sick day could mean not paying their next bill. But when it comes to limiting the spread of COVID-19 and future viruses, it is detrimental to the health of Americans.
Congress should make paid sick leave a federal mandate to ensure that the workforce is healthy. The federal government should take the initiative to immediately expand guaranteed paid sick leave (at least 2 weeks) to all American workers, including hourly and part-time workers.
