Worried what your co-workers will think of you if you head into work sick?
Well, worry not. A new survey by the National Sanitation Foundation found that workers think anyone who comes into the office while sick is a hard worker, or is the victim of low amounts of sick leave, according to Working Mother, a parenting blog. And just 16 percent of U.S. workers consider their sick co-workers as “insensitive by failing to consider colleagues’ health,” Working Mother said.
“Why all the in-office ailers? Deadlines (no surprise) as well as unpaid sick time are the main reason workers go to work when under the weather,” Working Mother said. “And 25 percent say they choose to satisfy bosses who expect them to work regardless of being ill. It's enough to make you, well, sick.”
