Support Businesses That Support Earned Sick Days!

Do you want to support businesses that provide earned sick days for their workers? Then come join us as we launch a new campaign!
-Free Refreshments!-

In Philadelphia, many businesses already give their workers an opportunity to earn paid sick days to care for themselves and their family members. On August 26, we will begin honoring those businesses by giving them the opportunity to be recognized for their actions.

Please join us at Wired Beans Cafe at 12 noon on August 26, 2011, as we launch a decal campaign giving businesses an opportunity to show how much they want healthy customers and healthy staff. Wired Beans will be the first of many businesses to place our new decal in their window showing their support for paid sick days. We will be encouraging other businesses to come to show their support for sick days, and we will continue distributing these decals throughout the city.

We want to thank every business in Philadelphia who does the right thing for their workers. If your business support earned sick days and would like a decal, please fill out our survey at

WHEN: Friday, August 26 at 12 PM
WHERE:Wired Bean Cafe, 6736 Germantown Avenue, Philadelphia PA 19119

Register Now for National Audio Conferences on Job Scheduling

From our friends at CLASP Register now for three national audio conferences on job scheduling! Job schedules matter in many ways. For all workers, it helps when an employer is responsive to a request for a needed schedule change. And far too many workers have volatile and potentially destabilizing schedules. If you don't know when you are supposed to be at work until the last minute, how do you arrange child care or transportation? If your total hours fluctuate from week to week, how do you budget for rent and food? To address these issues and emerging policy opportunities, the Center for Law and Social Policy (CLASP) is hosting and sponsoring three Job Schedules Matter audio conferences.

The conferences, which are co-sponsored by the Center for Popular Democracy and the National Women's Law Center, will include comments from U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren and Congressman George Miller on why they introduced the Schedules that Work Act. You'll also hear from workers about th…
