Interesting Fact - Sickness

According to a study by insurance company RIAS, younger workers in the UK take twice as much time off sick as people over 50.

(Just a quarter of over-50s took time off sick in the past year, compared to half of those aged between 20 and 29.

They are also more likely to fake an illness: 44%  of younger people were found to have faked being ill to avoid coming into work, compared to just 12% of over-50s.

It's probably because older workers are more worried about getting another job.)
