Ever wonder what people really do on their sick days? Turns out, most of them are actually sick. That's the finding of new research that uncovered various work- and salary-related differences between men and women and revealed some interesting statistics about sick days.
According to the research, conducted by new career website theFIT,84 percent of the 5,000 people it recently surveyed said they actually were sick or were caring for a sick child the last time they called in sick.
In fact, only one in five men (and only one in seven women) were lying about their most recent sick day, the survey found.
