90% OF US GO TO WORK SICK, AND A THIRD OF US NEVER SKIP A DAY

It’s the start of flu season.  So go get your flu shot, or one of your co-workers MIGHT get you sick.

A new poll found just under 90% us go to work with cold or flu symptoms at least some of the time.  Including a full third who said they ALWAYS do, no matter how sick they are.  Only 11% of us never go to work with cold or flu symptoms.

 

The #1 reason we show up sick is we feel like there’s just too much work to do.  54% of people in the survey said that’s one of the reasons they still go in.

The top four reasons are:  There’s just too much work, I don’t want to burn a sick day, pressure from the boss, and my co-workers do it, so I should too.
