Let Your Legislators Know That Earned Sick Days Are Important To You!

PathWays PA is proud to offer a new way to contact your legislators directly about important issues.  Over the next few weeks, we will be rolling out action alerts that will allow you to send targeted emails directly to your state and federal representatives on the issues that are important to you.

Our first email is targeted to tomorrow's hearing on Earned Sick Time by the House Labor Relations Committee.  If you support earned sick time, please let your legislator know today!

Currently in Pennsylvania 46 percent of workers have no earned sick time, and a majority of employees without this benefit work in food service and care giving positions. When workers without earned sick time are sick, they have to choose between going to work – where they could potentially infect co-workers or customers – and staying home – where they will lose pay and possibly their jobs.
