There are few social justice issues today that cut across a broad range of issue areas like paid sick days: economic justice, labor rights, women’s equality, working families, and public health. The Healthy Families Act (H.R. 1516/S. 636), introduced by Rep. Rosa DeLauro and Sen. Patty Murray, would require employers with 15 or more workers scheduled to work each day to permit employees to earn up to 7 job-protected paid sick days every year.
Urge your Members of Congress to support the Healthy Families Act, legislation that would pass paid sick days nationwide and support working families.
