Paid Sick Leave Call To Action

Last Friday's Public Hearing on the NYC Paid Sick Time Act was a HUGE success. Following the hearing, Speaker Quinn reached out to lead cosponsor Councilmember Gale Brewer for negotiations on the bill. Right now, Speaker Quinn needs to know that New Yorkers want the bill as it stands right now: All businesses with more than 5 employees must provide their workers with 5 paid sick days per year. And businesses with fewer than 5 employees must allow workers to take 5 unpaid sick days per year.

We don't want the carve out to go any higher than 5 employees. So we need you to Call Speaker Quinn right now and tell her :

"Do not gut the NYC Paid Sick Time Act. I do not want the carve out for businesses to rise any higher than 5 employees, because I want the bill to cover as many hard-working New Yorkers as possible. This modest measure will not harm employers with 5 or more employees. Thank you for your time."

Call Speaker Quinn at her legislative office number: (212) 788-7210.

Thank you for all you do!
