Now's the Time for Paid Sick Time

Over one million New York City workers lack paid sick time to care for themselves or their loved ones. For these workers, the choice is stark: work through illness, endangering coworkers and customers, or face losing pay and the possibility of losing your job. Paid sick leave legislation has been enacted from San Francisco to Connecticut, from Seattle to Washington, DC, but, in New York, the Paid Sick Time Act has been stalled. The New York Times has twice endorsed the bill and the Center for Popular Democracy is working hard to organize and move this bill passed its final hurdle.  

In partnership with the NY State Paid Family Leave Coalition, CPD has been playing a lead role on campaign strategy, legislative drafting, and faith organizing in support of the bill.
