Paid Sick Days
Nearly two in five private sector workers are denied paid sick days. In the past four years, one in seven low wage workers were fired because they or their family member was sick. Paid sick days is a matter of economic security; no parent should have to choose between keeping their job or their paycheck and taking care of a sick child. We must ensure that all working people earn at least seven paid sick days from their employer to recover from their own illness or injury or to take care of a sick family member.
