Workers in Westchester rallied Monday afternoon in support of paid sick leave. Labor leaders say 125,000 employees in the county do not have it.
The Institute for Women’s Policy Research (IWPR) has released a new study which finds that approximately 39 percent of San Antonio workers lack paid sick leave, a figure which puts San Antonio above the estimated national average of 36 percent.
Ale Tierra-Williams, a San Antonio-based cook, says the issue is not only a professional concern but also a matter of public health. "The thing is that I work in the service industry so I cannot be at work if I'm sick," she says. "So that will be, for me, it's losing hours, losing money and possibly getting fired. It's that serious."
This spring, as workers' rights advocates began their push for mandatory paid sick leave for every worker employed in Dallas, one of the biggest questions that bubbled to the surface is just how many people in the city need paid sick leave.
