Presentations from Today's Public Forum on Earned Sick Time

Thanks to everyone who came out to our Public Forum on Earned Sick Time! Please take a look at the presentations below, and get ready to take action on earned sick time.





Ready to take action? You can:

  • Tell us your story! Email us at policy@pathwayspa.org to tell us about your experience with earned sick time.
  • Sign our petition, which we will take to the Pennsylvania Legislature and to Philadelphia's City Council.
  • Please call your state representative and ask him or her to ensure all workers have access to earned sick time by cosponsoring and supporting HB 1830, The Healthy Families, Healthy Workplaces Act. Please remind them that all workers need access to earned sick time to care for themselves and their families and to keep Pennsylvania healthy and safe. If your legislator is already a cosponsor, call and say thank you for his or her support.
  • If you live in Philadelphia, please call your City Councilperson and ask him or her to ensure all workers have access to earned sick time by cosponsoring and supporting Bill No. 080474, Promoting Healthy Families and Workplaces. You may also want to request that they hold a hearing on the bill or bring it to a vote. Please select one at-large City Councilperson to call and ask for his or her support as well. If your City Councilperson is already a cosponsor, call and say thank you for his or her support.
