Restaurant workers admit coming sick to work

(CNN) - A new study revealed that one in eight restaurant employees came to work sick last year - at least twice.

Some employees said they had to come to work sick because their restaurants don't have paid sick leave.

The type of illnesses reported by workers in the study, which was published in The Journal of Food Preparation, were diarrhea and vomiting.

The new survey was taken in nine states. Previous studies found that five percent of workers showed up sick for work.
