Most people can't afford to take time off from work now a days....

Do they not have sick time available?

We have a work from home arrangement, nice to not have to use PTO when you are sick. Plus it does keep things from spreading.  Of course with my wife working in a school and two kids in school that is cancelled out by all the plagues they bring home...

I don't think so.

Brutal. I’ve never heard of a job not having sick time available except like... minimum wage jobs

My wife started her job in May. 6 months until she can accrue it. 
Sadly some employers still don’t have it.
she’s still looking for another job.

I have a game this Tuesday. Looking forward to it... after a 3 week break since our last game. Scheduling in our league isn't perfect and ice time is sort of jammed up with only two rinks in the area. But, we have about a game a week from here on out which is good.

Where I am, we get three days, and they're not paid... basically three that can be missed, due to sickness, without getting let go.

Coming from the job that I had for over 25 years with Vacation, holiday, & sick time it's truly mind-blowing she doesn't get that. 

What's even worse she gets holidays off, but only gets paid if she uses her own time.

Officially, my workplace allows up to 48 hours of sick time (Mass. has an earned sick time law, so every employee in the state automatically accrues 1 hour for every 30-40 hours worked), which is 6 days for a normal job, but for a paramedic it's two shifts.  

They also get real, real pissy if you have to leave work sick.
