Everyone gets sick and everyone deserves the opportunity to recover without risking income or job loss.
More than 750,000 Maryland workers cannot earn paid sick days and often go to work sick, send sick children to school or daycare, or in the worst situations, lose their jobs because they cannot come to work.
No hardworking Marylanders should have to make the impossible choice between their health and their job. The Healthy Working Families Act would allow workers to earn up to seven paid sick days per year from their employer.
Maryland families can’t afford to wait any longer. Please vote favorably on the Healthy Working Families Act.
