Pass Earned Sick Days in Philadelphia

To be delivered to Mark Squilla, Philadelphia City Council, Bobby Henon, Philadelphia City Council, James Kenney, Philadelphia City Council, and Dennis O'Brien, Philadelphia City Council

Petition Statement

Please support Earned Sick Days legislation once it's introduced.

Earned Sick Days will allow all Philadelphia workers to stay home from work when they're sick, protecting public health as well as their own.

No one should have to work when sick, or to make the choice between leaving a sick child at home or paying bills.

Earned Sick Days legislation matters and will improve the quality of life of everyone in Philadelphia.
There are currently 318 signatures. NEW goal - We need 400 signatures!

Petition Background

Later this month, the Philadelphia City Council will introduce legislation that would guarantee all workers in the city have paid sick days off from work.

It's about public health. It's about family health. It's about employee respect.

Four Philadelphia City Council members could stand in the way of this important legislation. Contact them now and make sure they do the right thing.
