Faking sick days?

NEW YORK (KAIT) - New numbers from a survey by Harris Interactive show that 50 percent of U.S. workers admit to calling in sick when they really not.

Compared to other countries, 71 percent of Chinese workers admit to "faking" a sick day while only 16 percent of French workers have gotten out of work.

In this same survey about one-third of U.S. workers and half of Chinese workers say if they had more paid vacation they wouldn't fake being sick.
