Why Every Worker Should Have Paid Sick Time
Katarina vanden Heuvel recently opinionated in the Washington Post on the importance of paid sick leave for America. That is correct...the country; not just the workers.
As she correctly noted,"[t]he absence of paid sick leave is a glaring injustice that puts American workers in the distinguished company of workers in Syria, Somalia and North Korea. It’s an affront to our values and the dignity of a hard day’s work. And it’s a drag on our families, our businesses, and our society."
Thankfully workers are seeing improvements. Well certainly not a sea change of opinion, cities and states are starting to make changes that permit workers to take paid sick time.
