The issue of paid sick days is incredibly important to workers and their families. Each week, far too many Maryland workers continue to face impossible choices between their health, the health of loved ones, and their jobs.

The General Assembly has the power to ensure 2016 is the year that Maryland’s public policies catch up with the realities faced by today’s working families. Everyone gets sick and should have the opportunity to earn paid sick leave. Please stand up for working families by supporting this important piece of legislation.
