Want to Ensure All Workers Have the Right to Earn Sick Days?



Join the Coalition for Healthy Families and Workplaces for a Letter Writing Party on December 7!

In addition to networking, free coffee and refreshments, and an opportunity to learn more about earned sick time, we will be asking each person to put pen to paper and let their members of City Council know why earning paid sick days is important.

Coffeee img451WHEN: Tuesday, December 7th - 8:00 AM – 10:00 AM

WHERE: United Way of Southeastern Pennsylvania, 1709 Benjamin Franklin Parkway, Philadelphia PA


Come for the entire event or just stop in to send a letter. 

Free coffee and a light breakfast will be provided.

Even if you have paid sick days it is likely that people you come into contact with every day do not. Did you know that 41% of workers in Philadelphia are forced to choose between going to work sick, or sending a child to school sick, or losing their pay or possibly their job? The majority of workers without paid sick days are those preparing and serving our food and caring for our children.

For more information about the event please email policy@pathwayspa.org. To learn more about the need for earned sick time visit http://earnedsicktime.blogspot.com.
