What if I told you that maybe it isn't a weak immune system, but rather your co-worker making you sick?

According to a new survey, reported by WILX, 90% of professionals in their field admit that have come to sick with flu or cold like symptoms.

Believe it or not, one-third of those in this survey, said they always went into work when they were under the weather.

Half of those who said they came into work while they were sick, said they did it because they just had too much to do, and another 40% just didn't want to use up their sick time.

So, how could this issue be fixed? For starters of course, you could stay home when you're sick. However, experts are saying bosses should take some time off while they are ill as well, to hopefully help their employees feel encouraged to do the same.
