Earned Paid Sick Days
In 2016, the paid sick leave bill, Healthy Working Families Act, SB472/HB580 passed the House by an vote of 84-54, but did not get out of committee in the Senate. Please thank your delegates who voted for the bill and let you senator know that you support this legislation. We expect a similar bill to be introduced in 2017. You can find the names of delegates who voted in favor here.
We know from experience that lawmakers in Annapolis respond best when they hear directly from their constituents. Your voice will make all the difference in securing a critical majority of legislative supporters. Please email, call or visit your legislators now and let them know that you support paid sick leave for all working families!
