Following on from yesterday being the most depressing day of the year.
I wonder how many people really took a sick day yesterday.
Each year sick leave costs the UK economy about Â£13 billion. On average, we each clock up ten sick days a year. Stress is the leading cause of long-term illness for office workers, while back pain is the leading cause for manual workers
How many people are really guilty ofÂ just bunking off work ,because they feel like a day off.
Also we all have different levels of pain, while some may think they are dying other will carrying on working.
Â Here is a letter I received , from my place of work , saying thank you for supporting other work members by not having one sick day in 6 month. I have many of these letters, and its not that I am neverÂ sick I just never seemÂ sick enough to take a day off work.
Very nice letter I know and more than most get But would it not be nice to get a day off work instead.
