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.
