Pass Earned Sick Days in Portland
Workers across Portland are forced to come into work, serving you dinner and taking care of your children while sick. In one of the worst flu seasons in history, all workers should be able to stay home when they're sick or when they have a sick child.
In too many cases, parents have to make the choice between leaving a sick child at home alone or paying their bills.
But now we have the chance to make sure that every working person in Portland has access to paid sick days off from work.
City leaders are considering adopting legislation that would force all businesses to provide paid sick days to their employees, benefiting workers and the greater community the same.
Will you send a message to Portland Mayor Charlie Hales and City Commissioners?
