“With all of Sage’s recent health scares I’ve been more thankful than ever for Danny’s paid sick days. There have been several occasions over this past year when Danny has had to take sick days to help with childcare. The pandemic made it harder to take both girls to the doctor at the same time, and without having close family nearby, we needed Danny to take time off work. As a one income family, I’m extra thankful that his time off was paid, but that’s not the case for everyone.

Did you know that the state of VA doesn’t require employers to offer paid sick days? After the year we’ve had, I can’t imagine not having paid sick days.”
