    You can say that for anything.

    Oh 2% more taxes will bankrupt a business? You are doing it wrong.

    Additional fees for a permit is unfair? You are doing it wrong.

    How about you flip the argument and say 40 hrs per year is only 1/52th of pay for a full time employee. If he/she can't make do, he/she is doing it wrong. Let the businesses and employees work out what benefits are to be offered. Instead of government coming in to force a one size fit all solution.
    Oh Yeah!

    I'm willing to bet that people working while sick costs more in lost productivity than 40hrs per employee.

    actually I would have to believe that some productivity is better than no productivity?

    If nobody was ever contagious that might be true.

    If people who are sick are working, then people who caught the sickness are also still working. Then there's no productivity loss? Either way, my disagreement isnt the fact that people shouldn't get sick days (paid or un-paid), its the fact that compensations and benefits is an agreement between the employee and the employer.
    Oh Yeah!

    Exactly, employers need employees just as much as the employee needs a job. If you are valuable and tough to replace you already have sick days plus a bunch of other benefits. The people who have no sick days are minimum wage employee's who have no skills or education and are lucky to have a job. Want sick days? become more valuable so that the employer does not want to lose you. These types of increases will keep adding up and the costs will be passed onto the consumers, why should we further subsidize these people?
