From our friends at Family Values @ Work
All workers and their families need paid sick days – time to visit a doctor, recover from illness, support a sick child or loved one without sacrificing their wages or their job. Our network and partners have now won paid sick days in 32 locations (watch that number go up soon!) But we all know people who live in other cities and states where these policies are being blocked. We need our national representatives to pass a federal standard, the Healthy Families Act (HFA). Join us May 16 – 20 to help celebrate the state and local wins and build demand for HFA Now!
