Americans Can't Afford to Stay Home

Posted: Updated:

 

You know that coughing co-worker you wish would stay home?

 

     In tonight's Healthier Me, it turns out that many Americans cannot afford to. The Bureau of Labor Statistics says nearly a third of the nation's employees cannot take sick days, and while most full-timers receive paid sick days, but only a fraction of part-time workers do.

 

That's raising health risks for everyone -- especially this year, with the flu outbreak hitting early and particularly hard.
