A Step Closer to Statewide Paid Sick Days

Good news on statewide Paid Sick Days from the Washington Work and Family Coalition:

YOU DID IT!!

You helped pack the room on Monday for the Paid Sick Days (HB 1356) bill hearing. Legislators heard passionate testimony from a school nurse, a grocery worker, a small business owner, a domestic violence advocate and a senior -- all speaking to to the importance of every worker having paid sick days.

THERE'S THE NEXT CRUCIAL STEP:  The House Appropriations Committee will consider whether to send the bill to the full House for a vote. Please click here to send an email urging committee members to support Washington workers by moving paid sick days to the full House for a vote!

Your action today will help ensure over 1 million workers in Washington state can earn paid leave to care for themselves or a loved one - including 170,000 people working in accommodation and food service, 167,000 in retail and 93,000 in health care and social assistance.

Thank you!
