    I’m retired, so you would think paid sick days would no longer matter to me. But when my married daughter became gravely ill, the fact that her husband could take a paid sick day once in a while to give me relief from the many hours I spent every day at her side made a tremendous difference in my ability to continue to help them both out. Without paid sick leave for both of them, their finances would have been so hard hit that they might have lost everything. I’m so grateful that both their employers gave all of us this support during a difficult time. (She’s now recovered and back at work.)
