Contemplating the idea of taking off sick time. Read an article about it in the NYT yesterday in relation to COVID. Isn’t it odd that we as a society seem to think people who work through sickness are strong? Isn’t isn’t the actual strength in knowing that you’re not doing anyone any favors by working while sick? I really wish the US would adopt some rules around universal sick time for workers. Wouldn’t hurt either if managers would stop sending bad messages to their direct reports by working while sick.
