I’ve never been comfortable with PTO; it’s never made sense to me that your sick time should eat…

My old company did PTO and I got a lot more colds there because people (myself included) came to work sick to save PTO days for vacation. At my current workplace they are separate, but a bunch of people are asking to switch to PTO because they’re generally healthy and want more vacation days. I like keeping them separate because it encourages people to stay home when they’re sick. Having the flu is not a vacation, and it feels unfair to make less healthy people use vacation time for illness.
