72,000 workers in St. Paul have to go to work sick or go without pay. It's time to change that! The St. Paul City Council is about to vote on an ordinance that would make sure workers can get paid sick days.
Paid Sick Days is an issue of public health, family values, common sense, and racial & gender equity! Currently, over half of Latino, Black and Asian workers, and 37% of white workers, lack paid sick days.
The St. Paul ordinance will require employers to offer 48 hours of paid sick time. These days can be used to care for one's self or family member in case of illness. They can also be used when snow days cause schools or businesses to close. In addition, they can be used by people who need time off to escape from an abusive partner.
Hundreds of workers, people of faith, health professionals and community members have been pushing for a strong Paid Sick Days ordinance. 28 other cities, counties and states have already passed Paid Sick Days legislation. Let's get it done in St. Paul this month!
