Woong’s Story

July 22, 2013

Woong has been a restaurant worker for over 9 years. He never put much thought into the need and importance of paid sick days, until he moved to DC from California and got really sick. Turns out he had the swine flu. Woong worked with swine flu for a few days, before he was no longer able to stand and was forced to go to the hospital. As a result, he lost his job, his pay check, and doesn’t know how many of his co-workers or customers he infected.
