Another Paid Sick Leave Rally Targets Quinn

"Council Speaker Chris Quinn has stalled a paid-sick day bill, but she’s now being pushed by liberals and women, who will rally at City Hall Monday."

More than 15 women elected officials, including U.S. Reps. Nydia Velázquez and Carolyn Maloney, will gather at City Hall today to demand that New York City Council Speaker Christine Quinn allow a vote on a bill requiring employers to give their workers paid sick leave, The New York Daily News reported.

Last week, Gloria Steinem said that she would withdraw her endorsement of Speaker Quinn’s campaign unless Speaker Quinn allows a vote on the paid sick leave bill, The Daily News added.
