New Report Quantifies Paid Sick Days’ Value to Working Families, including:

Nearly 40 million private-sector workers do not have
paid sick time.
• Employees without paid sick time are likely to go to
work sick, where they will have reduced productivity,
at a significant cost both to their employer and to their
possibility for professional advancement.
• Without paid sick leave, parents are forced to send
sick children to school, which could potentially impact
their long-term health and educational performance.
