CNN says:

    "American workers should stop trying to be heroes and just stay home when they're sick-- it could be cheaper for their employers, according to a study.

    Workers who come in sick cost their employers an average of $255 each per year, according to Cornell University labor researchers.

    Sick employees have difficulty concentrating, work more slowly and have to repeat tasks, bogging down productivity, according to the study. (They also get their co-workers sick, but those costs were not counted in the study.)"

This is something that bothers me to no end: people who think their contribution to the company is sooooo important that they need to risk making everyone else sick, just so they can come in long enough to spread their disease before they leave early.

Just. Stay. Home.
