Despite this veto, PathWays PA and the Coalition for Healthy Families and Workplaces will continue working with City Council to do everything possible to support the 71 percent of Philadelphians who want paid sick days and the 210,000 workers (and their families) who need them. Please continue to visit the Coalition's website, post on the Facebook page, and let us know what you are thinking via Twitter. We will certainly be doing the same!
