21. People do not get enough sick leave
So they don't want to use it on anything minor. Can't say I blame them. There was a thread recently asking about how much vacation time people had and some also mentioned how much sick leave they got. For some it was only a FEW DAYS (like 5 or 6) per year. Ridiculous. Not enough to cover even one serious cold or flu, not to mention anything else.

Companies and corporations are so stingy with their leave policies that, yes, people do come to work sick. They mostly have no choice.
