I support paid sick days because no one should have to choose between their family's health and their job.

No one should be forced to choose between their family's health and their job. But for a shocking 500,000 people in Connecticut without paid sick days, losing wages is as easy as catching a cold, and a child's doctor's appointment could cost you your job.
Workers without paid sick days include thousands of people who cook and prepare our food, drive our children to school and care for the sick and elderly. When they're forced to come to work sick it isn't healthy for any of us.
It's not right. This is the year to pass legislation to allow workers to earn paid sick days. Please join us by signing our petition.
