Um....if someone DIDN'T take a PTO day, they would be paid, right? So tell me how taking a PTO day is going to hurt a business. Seems to be that it's just a lame argument for doing away with PTO. This country needs to learn a thing or two about the importance about time off for workers from other countries. It's also just another way to punish people for having the audacity to become ill. Corporate world sucks.

Yes, because this sleazo is who I listen to when it comes to making decisions for my small business . .

It's really touching to know how much big business cares about small business.

What is also curious is just how BIG some small Businesses really are.

Who's asking for free stuff now Richers! I keep saying this and it makes so much sense: the rich are money addicts.

Oh, go back to Australia, Mr Murdoch. You'd be very comfortable with the rednecks over there. Silly goose. Hope you enjoy your stint in prison soon.

Rupert Murdoch is the guy who endorses President Obama in the '08 election through the Washington Post! The only thing he has going for him is that his wife is a Democrat

Mr Murdock....please go back to Austraila or England or whatever island you own...... Americans don't need advice from a CEO that allows hacking of dead girls phone mail so he can sell some newspapers!

First off they need to stop classify as "sick time". It should be just be called something lie "Paid Time Off (PTO)" are any other simply name. Then it doesn't matter what you take your time for.

Sick days, health insurance, increase in minimum wage, tax increase above 250K. Republicans say will hurt small business. Don't think 2 to 4 sick days a year will kill anyone. Quit whining or take your small business to Somolia. Pretty sure they don't get sick pay.

Sorry, but that is a true statement. As are the businesses owned by the Koch brothers, even though they generate billions in income.

It's a matter of the legal definition of small business. It's not what you think it is.

Walmart doesn't offer health insurance nor paid days off.

I saw "sick" and saw this tagline picture, and I thought perhaps he was very ill (physically). Apparently not.

Great idea. Force someone with the flu go into work because they need the money.

as with most liberals, it's always justifiable to spend someone else's money with this mandate.

Coming from someone who has been declared unfit to run a news corporation in the UK, i think the NYT won't be taking its cues from him.

I am so sick of these right wing Republicans claiming to care abour small business when they do everything possible to put them out of business. America would be a much better place If we had a neighborhood stores and Restaurants Gas Stations BANKS Savings and loans they have
put them all out of business in the name of small business. Now they want to profitise Schools
Medicine and Roads for gods sake.

Obama tried to pass a tax break for small businesses when they hire. The GOP blocked the bill.
