On March 25, New York City Councilwoman Gale Brewer reintroduced New York City's Paid Sick Time Act in the City Council, with 34 of the City Council’s 51 members as co-sponsors. Advocates celebrated the bill's reintroduction with a thrilling and energizing rally at City Hall.
New analysis from the Institute for Women’s Policy Research (IWPR) provides support for what paid sick days advocates have long argued: lack of access to paid sick days means employees are more likely to go to work sick, spread contagious disease, prolong the effects of pandemic illness, and harm the public health.
In a recent speech before the staff of the U.S. Department of Labor, First Lady Michelle Obama emphasized the Obama administration’s support for the Healthy Families Act and other work and family policies.
Since its launch just this summer, New York City’s campaign for paid sick days has quickly become one of the most-watched in the country.
On Nov. 10, the Senate HELP Committee’s Subcommittee on Children and Families, chaired by Sen. Chris Dodd, hosted a hearing on H1N1 and paid sick days entitled “The Cost of Being Sick.”
