    I have never worked anywhere that a hangover is considered an illness that's covered by sick leave.
    I may be wrong.

    Now we can watch Connecticut and California get into a contest to see which State can run the most businesses out of State before total collapse and bankruptcy.

    Re: Conn. becomes 1st state requiring paid sick time

    Gov. Dannel P. Malloy announced Tuesday that he signed the law requiring businesses in the service industry with 50 or more employees to allow workers to accrue one hour of sick time for every 40 hours worked. The law takes effect Jan. 1.
    So if you work 40 hours... you're entitled to an hour paid of sick leave?

    What's the problem with this again? Just to do the math here, to get a single 8 hour day of paid leave you'd have to work for 8 weeks. Am I missing something? Why are people against this again? You'd be entitled to a week's worth of paid sick leave in a year if you work an 8 hour day. Isn't that what most people get around the industrial world?
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK
