Description

This story details how public employees accumulate paid sick time at a rate much greater than their counterparts in the private sector and also, take more paid sick time. Additionally, private sector employees are rarely compensated for unpaid sick time. The story reveals how the taxpayer is forced to pick up a huge tab in order to pay millions of dollars to effectively pay the public employees twice for their work.
