On the BBC News website today is an article exploring the reasons Americans take less sick leave than citizens of other countries – England, for example.
This is going to be a very short post.
One sentence from the article made an impression on me. A small sentence, a statement of fact easily verified. A state of affairs that would be a source of shame to our elected representatives, if they had any shame:
“America is the only developed nation that does not guarantee paid sick leave by law.”
What is there really to add?
