That paid "sick" leave thing is going federal

Too bad for the businesses in Milwaukee's suburbs who wanted to avoid getting sucked into this madness--Congress is taking it up.

Businesses with 15 employees will be required to give paid "sick" leave--up to 3 consecutive paid days off with no advance notice and no doctor's explanation needed, 7 days/year total. The "sick" person doesn't have to be the worker or even a relative, just someone with "close association."

Of course, that's less than one paid hangover/booty call per month. Seems unreasonable that employees can't take as much time as they need and still get the same check at the end of the pay period. *scoff*
