how?

It seems pretty obvious. If you're at home (and not working from home) then you aren't working. If period = sick then you can't work as many days per month so you're not as efficient. Why would someone want to hire you if they have to pay you for days you automatically won't be working? They'd do better hiring a man for the job.

And for many women, they aren't completely incapacitated by their period, but would certainly benefit from some flexibility like the ability to work from home or easily adjust their hours in the office.

yeah that would work. 

just the messiness and fatigue.....but i did have a friend whose cycle was awful...she'd be vomiting and her flow is so heavy too.

not that anyone is illogical but the amount of pain killers i pop...smdh


I think the symptoms vary so much that flexibility is necessary.

Me, I can't use public restrooms. So period plus diarrhea or vomiting means I can't go in. But I could still work from home.

Some people shouldn't be driving or trying to do their job with the amount of pain killers it takes them to be able to barely function.

Never had a problem with it.

Employers in this country may refer to it as 'Sick Days', which is already about 20 days/yr   

There is the potential for abuse of this time off.

you're right...for an employer, they don't care, they'd rather hire a man...but then again, they may be paying us less for the same work anyway so really, it all balances out.  

it was compared to the flu or cold...how is it any different if it's really debilitating?  i don't think it should be automatically given bc a lot of ppl would take advantage of it, but the ppl that need it should get it.

And that's why sick leave policies should be better for all workers.

Doesn't matter what you use the sick time for, you should have it. That cuts down on discrimination across the board.

I'm LOL thinking about that show Bad Teacher . 

When she comes in late for millionth time ...walks past him and says: "female problems." And he says 'poor thing. 3rd time this month' Or something like that. LOL

I love DA Grier in anything.

Mine aren't usually bad. The only time mine are rough is if it is ever late by a couple of days and that first day is always painful and heavier than normal after being late.

I would gladly take the leave if offered because although my periods aren't bad, my tolerance for people and most things the first couple of days is basically in the negative. I really should be home in my bed in complete isolation.

I know women who bleed through their clothes and have it running down their legs and vomit from the pain due to endometriosis monthly so they could really use this leave if it was ever offered. My sister was one of these people when she was a pre-teen.
