Do you go to work when you're sick? You're not alone. Despite doctors' orders, many of us go to work while we are sick.  
A survey of more than 1,000 U.S. adults taken during this year's flu season revealed one in four workers always goes to work when they are sick.
Most said they would have too much to make up if they missed a day. Just as many said they couldn't afford to miss work. Others said their boss expects them to come to work no matter how sick they are.
Co-workers didn't seem to mind. Many of the survey participants considered their sick co-workers to be hard workers.
