Paid Sick Days

We all get sick. But not everyone can stay home when they are contagious. In cities and states without paid sick days standards, 2 of every 5 workers don’t earn a single day of paid sick leave, including many on the front lines of public health and food safety – in restaurants, retail stores, and even health care. EOI is working to pass minimum paid sick days standards so no one has to choose between their job and their health.
