All Workers Deserve Paid Sick Days

To be delivered to The United States House of Representatives and The United States Senate

Petition Statement

More than 40 percent of private-sector workers and 70 percent of low wage workers do not have a single paid sick day off of work to take care of themselves or family when ill.

This means the workers across the country, serving your meals and caring for your kids, could very well be sick, but forced to come to work or risk losing their job.

Please support the Healthy Families Act which allows workers to earn up to seven paid sick days annually to use to recover from short-term illness, care for a sick family member or seek routine medical care.
There are currently 4,907 signatures. NEW goal - We need 5,000 signatures!

Petition Background

More than 40 percent of private-sector workers and 70 percent of low wage workers do not have a single paid sick day off of work to take care of themselves or family when ill.

In many cases, workers have to make the decision to stay home and take care of a child when sick, or paying bills. No one should have to risk their paycheck and job because they're sick.

The Healthy Families Act will help working people across the country by making sure that all workers have paid sick time off of work to use when sick.

Send a message to your lawmakers now.
