HealthCare

Our work has built momentum at the state and local levels towards a national standard for paid sick days in the form of the Healthy Families Act (HFA) which was introduced and sponsored in the U.S. House of Congress (H.R. 3409) by Rep. Rosa L. DeLauro, [D-CT-3], and sponsored in the Senate (S.1664) by Sen. Bernie Sanders [I-VT]. This law will guarantee that workers earn up to 7 paid sick and safe days each year. If passed, workers will be able to use paid time off for personal care and safety, family illness, visit a doctor, or deal with the aftermath of domestic or sexual violence.
