Share Your Paid Sick Days Story and Help Create a Better Working Environment for All Pennsylvanians!

We're collecting the stories of working Pennsylvanians so that elected leaders and others can understand the real life impact of not having these basic benefits. These stories are part of the Working Families Story Bank, which is a collection of story portraits of workers and employers across America.

We want to know:

  • How you feel about the importance of paid sick days and the right to take off days from work to care for yourself or family
  • How were you or your family affected when you didn't receive paid sick days or family leave?
    • Did you lose your job?
    • Did you experience financial difficulty or bankruptcy?
    • Was your child left at school?
    • Were you prevented from caring for an elderly parent?
  • Are you a business owner who provides paid sick days, or are you employed by a business that does provide them?

To share your story, contact Marianne Bellesorte at 610-543-5022 ext. 209 or mbellesorte@pathwayspa.org.

Please take a moment to sign on our petition asking Philadelphia City Council members and the Mayor to support earned sick time, and the work-family balance agenda.
