Do you find yourself waking up sick and dragging yourself into work no matter if it’s a cold or some Walking Dead type disease? You’re not alone. A new study says millennials are the most likely to not take a sick day, and I’m not happy about it. I’m the type of person that will catch everything but the cold is always worse for me. Looking at this new study, nine out of 10 of all adults reported they’ve gone to work sick, 39% of Millennials say they go to work every time they feel symptoms.
Why aren’t we using our paid days off that are literally called sick days? The top three reasons people are working through illness in order are
- Too much work to do
- Not wanting to use up a sick day
- Pressure from employers
None of these are good excuses! Take your sick days and stop getting all of us sick.
