Many parents worry about losing their jobs

Posted: Updated:
JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

A third of parents are concerned about losing their jobs when they stay home to take care of sick children, according to a new study.

31-percent said they don't have enough paid leave to cover the days they need to take off when their kids are ill.

Researchers say this leaves many parents in a bind to find back-up care which was a problem for about half of those surveyed.
