Most people go to work even when they're sick

Despite doctors' orders, a lot of us go to work when we're sick.

A survey of more than 1,000 U.S. adults taken during this year's flu season revealed one in four workers goes to work when they're sick.

Most people said they have too much to make up if they miss a day or they couldn't afford to miss work.

Some said their boss expects them to work no matter how sick they are.

Co-workers didn't seem to mind much though. A lot of people surveyed considered their sick co-workers to be hard workers.
