Status Update: I Support Paid Sick Days

On Thursday, City Council is going to consider moving a bill for earned sick days from "suspension" to the active calendar. To show support for the issue to Councilors and Mayor Michael Nutter, Philadelphians are joining with us to hold a "virtual rally" on Wednesday May 25th from Noon to 1 pm.

We need you to add your voice to the rallying call-without even leaving your desk!

Take part in the Earned Sick Days Coalition's virtual rally in support of an earned sick days policy for all people working in the city limits of Philadelphia.

When: Wednesday May 25th from Noon to 1 pm.
Where: Your computer or smart phone.
How: By sharing why you support an Earned Sick Days policy and/or how it will affect YOU!

  • Post a Facebook status update about how Earned Sick Days can help you or why it is the kind of policy Mayor Nutter should support.
  • Send a tweet to @Michael_Nutter and let him know why supporting an Earned Sick Days policy is the right thing to do.
Don't use social media but want to share a story? We're setting up a system that will allow you to say what you want to say as part of the rally. We'll have suggested tweets and Facebook status updates available by Wednesday to help you get started and once you see what others are saying on the #paidsickdays Twitter hashtag you'll have plenty more you can add.

Wednesday is part of a set of actions the campaign is taking to build support for Earned Sick Days and you participation will really help let Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter and the whole City Council know that the entire city is behind this common-sense policy to support workers in the city.
