Can my employer require me to get a doctor's note? Part-Time Worker

Question Details:

I am a part time worker and never really call in sick. I had to the other day and now I am being disiplined because I didn't get a doctor's note. I don't have money to go to the doctor nor do I have insurance (not offered either). My question is can they do this? I hear they are notorious for giving bad references (no matter what) and I don't need this to fuel the fire. I am only 20 years old. I live in Wisconsin if this matters.
