Stonewall Democrats Neutral On Paid Sick Leave : Soon To Be Opposed ?

Stonewall-Democratic-Club-Paid-Sick-Leave-Farce, The Stonewall Democratic Club of New York City has been co-opted by New York City Council Christine Quinn and has no opinion about paid sick leave, says its president, Melissa Sklarz.

New York City Council Speaker Christine Quinn is triangulating with the Stonewall Democrats and Chelsea bar and restaurant owners to undermine public opinion for a paid sick leave bill.

To wit, look at how City Councilmember Gale Brewer made it sound like she was read to water-down the paid sick leave bill, even though it currently has 37 co-sponsors, according to Azi Paybarah. Also, witness how Stonewall Democrats President Melissa Sklarz has made a statement on Facebook, indicating that Stonewall Democrats do not have a position on paid sick leave as an issue, even though enacting such a law would be a great progressive advancement under labour and public health laws.
