Support Businesses That Support Earned Sick Days!

Do you want to support businesses that provide earned sick days for their workers? Then come join us as we launch a new campaign!
-Free Refreshments!-

In Philadelphia, many businesses already give their workers an opportunity to earn paid sick days to care for themselves and their family members. On August 26, we will begin honoring those businesses by giving them the opportunity to be recognized for their actions.

Please join us at Wired Beans Cafe at 12 noon on August 26, 2011, as we launch a decal campaign giving businesses an opportunity to show how much they want healthy customers and healthy staff. Wired Beans will be the first of many businesses to place our new decal in their window showing their support for paid sick days. We will be encouraging other businesses to come to show their support for sick days, and we will continue distributing these decals throughout the city.

We want to thank every business in Philadelphia who does the right thing for their workers. If your business support earned sick days and would like a decal, please fill out our survey at http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/decals.

WHEN: Friday, August 26 at 12 PM
WHERE:Wired Bean Cafe, 6736 Germantown Avenue, Philadelphia PA 19119
