A compromise bill has passed the New York City Council to require employers to give employees sick days.  What’s surprising about this – or maybe not surprising – is that very few American workers receive sick days.  Daily Kos has published a map of countries that require sick days.  Once again, the U.S. does not follow the pattern of most developed countries.  Workers in the U.S. are under attack.  We need to look at other countries and look at our own history.  It’s time to fight back.
