From: [Your Name]
Senate President Miller, Chairman Middleton & Members of the Maryland Senate,
THANK YOU for passing the Healthy Working Families Act (SB230). Because of you, hundreds of thousands of Maryland families are within reach of having earned paid sick days for the first time.
You’re helping the mother who today had to send her child to school sick because she couldn’t afford to take a day off.
You’re helping the fast food worker who wants to do the right thing and stay home when he’s sick, but wouldn’t be able to pay his electric bill without a paid sick day.
You’re helping the victim of domestic violence, who on top of everything else, must worry about whether she can afford to take a day off to get her family to safety.
And you’re helping the working parent who lives in fear that if he gets sick, he could lose his job.
Because of you, the promise of earned paid sick and safe days is within reach for these Marylanders.
Your leadership will have an impact for years to come!
