As we get closer to cold weather season, more and more people will be coming to the office with coughs and sniffles, begging the question, why don’t people stay home when they are sick?
Well, a new survey by Mucinex finds that 63% of adults, or 153 million people, admit they would try to hide being sick out of a fear of missing out on things they wanted to do. Meanwhile, another 35% of people believe they’d be considered superheroes for coming to work despite being sick.
But let’s face it, most co-workers don’t want you around when you are coughing and hacking. In fact, 82% of Americans say they wish people battling cold and flu symptoms would just stay home.
