In order to prepare for H1N1, this report calls for the establishment of emergency sick leave for workers in the event of a pandemic flu. It also calls for Congress to pass the Healthy Families Act, which would ensure that all workers in the United States have the opportunity to earn paid sick leave to care for themselves and their families.
You can take action on the Healthy Families Act
- Ask your legislators to cosponsor the Healthy Families Act! While some of Pennsylvania's legislators have cosponsored the bill already, the rest need to hear from you about why paid sick time is important to you and your family.
- Join us on Facebook to support earned sick time in Pennsylvania and in Philadelphia, or become part of our coalition of advocates and businesses working to ensure all Philadelphians and Pennsylvanians have the opportunity to earn sick time.
