NEW DATE! Join us on February 3 for the Hearing on Earned Sick Days in City Council!

UPDATED: Due to the snow, the hearing has been moved to February 3 at 11:30 AM.

Do workers deserve Paid Sick Time? YES THEY DO!

Join us February 3 and let your voice be heard on the Earned Sick Time bill, a bill that would affect 120,000 workers in Philadelphia. 40% of Philadelphia workers do not receive earned sick days, and 120,000 people would receive the benefits if this law were to pass.

Council needs to hear from you! Join us to send the message clear and strong, the time for earned sick days is now!
