From "michellematthews4": "Let's all
take a step down from our high horses and think honestly, most of us try
to use all of our vacation days and or sick days by the end of the
year! I wouldn't say that is greedy at all, you are entitled to it as a
part of your employment contract."
From "RandomX": "Why is it that whenever the teachers are threatening to strike, the unions run an advertising campaign that tells us that the teachers give their heart and soul to teach our children, and yet, they'll drop that in a heartbeat to take a casual sick day. They know that sick days are a contingency, a generosity offered by the employer: if you get sick, don't worry, they'll cover your pay. To take them casually is technically an act of fraud. Thanks for the show of dedication, teachers."
