Working Families United for New Jersey, Inc. is spearheading the campaign for a statewide earned sick days law. Our coalition’s persistent efforts, including writing letters and frequent meetings with legislators, continues to be the force driving this legislation forward.
A hearing will be held this coming Monday, June 22, 2015, in the Senate Labor Committee on earned sick days legislation (A-2354/S-785). I ask that you please join us next week to testify on behalf of the bill and demonstrate our broad-based support. We were strongly represented during the Assembly hearings, and we must now be equally vocal as the Senate takes up this legislation.
On behalf of our many coalition partners, I thank Senator Loretta Weinberg (D-37), who is the prime sponsor of earned sick days in the Senate, and Senate President Steve Sweeney for his (D-03) leadership and support of this important pro-working families’ bill.
With the continued support of our many coalition partners, we will ensure that all working families in New Jersey can enjoy the basic right of being able to take a sick day without having to sacrifice needed income. Once again, thank you for your ongoing support for advancing a progressive agenda to lift up all working families.
