“As a single mom, I have to choose whether to take care of my family’s health or my bills every time my daughter gets sick or I get a migraine. If I call in sick, I miss out on income and it makes it hard to catch up on bills. A paid sick time policy would dramatically change my life.” --Amy Nelson, St. Paul
42% of workers in St. Paul don't have access to paid sick time. That means every day a family in St. Paul is forced to choose between caring for themselves or a loved one or keeping a paycheck.
As the Minneapolis City Council nears a vote on paid sick time, we call on the St. Paul City Council to pass a paid sick time policy for all workers in St. Paul.
