The Healthy Families Act would set a national paid sick days standard, allowing workers to earn up to seven paid sick days a year to recover from short-term illnesses like the flu, access preventive care, care for a sick family member or seek assistance related to domestic violence, sexual assault or stalking. It is much needed and long overdue.
That’s why national, state and local organizations across the country are coming together with workers and business leaders to make sure lawmakers recognize the widespread benefits of establishing a paid sick days standard, the growing body of evidence demonstrating these benefits, and the urgent need for the Healthy Families Act.
