Millions of workers can’t afford to get sick and lose days’ pay because in the US there isn’t a paid sick leave federal law. Even missing a few hours of work may be strongly felt at the end of the month. Even President Obama noticed the issue and is willing to solve it: "Today, we are the only advanced country on Earth that doesn't guarantee paid sick leave or paid maternity leave to our workers. Forty-three million workers have no paid sick leave — 43 million. Think about that. And that forces too many parents to make the gut-wrenching choice between a paycheck and a sick kid at home." The only federal law that regulates sick leave is the Family and Medical Leave Act, that excludes millions of workers: those who work for companies with less than 50 people, those hired for less than an year and those who work less than 25 hours a week.
