To: The Connecticut State House and The Connecticut State Senate

Don't weaken Connecticut's paid sick days!

We must not erode the nation's first statewide Paid Sick Days Law! Oppose corporate-backed S.B. 1007.

Why is this important?

Last year, Connecticut became the first state in the country to give workers earned paid sick time off, so they didn't have to choose between their health and their job.

But now, corporate interests and big business lobbyists are trying to take away the days workers have earned to go to the doctor, or take care of a sick family member.

Masquerading as 'technical fixes' to the paid sick days law, a bill in the General Assembly would actually exclude more workers from the paid sick days law, allow companies to skirt the law by temporarily reducing their staff, and make workers use more time off than they need, forcing them to use up their earned time.

We should not allow our historic paid sick days law to be eroded. Tell your state representatives to oppose SB 1107!
