“In November, 2017, my doctors told me I had a detached retina in my left eye and would require a few operations in order to regain my vision. They scheduled the first procedure for the middle of July, during peak tourist season. I followed my doctor’s orders and wasn’t able to work for two weeks following the surgery. I estimated that this cost me 10-15 percent of my gross revenue for the year. Since this surgery is just the first of many procedures I need to have, I will likely experience additional revenue loss. It doesn’t have to be this way. Taking time away from work to attend to serious medical issues like eye surgery or family circumstances should not be calamitous for workers or small businesses. Congress needs to pass federal legislation that covers all working people in times of medical and family need – legislation like the FAMILY Act.”
