MYTH VS. FACT

We are back to tackle some myths about paid sick days and small business.


MYTH: Workers would be able to earn unlimited paid sick time.

FACT: We are advocating for workers to earn 1 hour of paid sick time for every 30 hours worked, up to 40 hours a year. Of course if employers want to provide more then they can.

MYTH: All small business owners oppose paid sick days.


FACT: Many small business owners, even those who don’t currently offer paid sick days, support having a standard. In order to stay competitive they need it to be required so that it’s a level playing field for them and their competitors versus them being the only ones offering it and accounting for it in their expenses.
