In America, they limit the number of days they'll pay you while out sick. It could be worse. Fast food businesses refuse to pay for even a single day out sick and have been known to fire workers for taking more than one or two unpaid sick days. They actively lobby against laws mandating ANY paid sick days.

America is the only country in the developed world where people tolerate and expect restaurants to pressure workers into preparing food while they're sick and can barely feed their own families. Don't eat fast food if you visit.
