So over the course of the year, how much sick time do we take? The average American worker is given about eight to 10 days of sick leave a year, but most people only take between 3 and 6.
Good Question: Should We Just Get Rid Of Sick Days?The average worker gets eight days of sick leave a year, but most people take between three and six. So as more companies combine personal, vacation and sick days into one pot, should we just do away with sick days?
