Support: Petition for paid sick days.
Just in from Mothering Justice, one of our Economic Justice Alliance of Michigan allies. Detroit People’s Platform supports this petition drive. Please share through your networks.
“In a distressing repeat of past lame duck shenanigans, Michigan lawmakers are considering a bill that would prohibit local governments from establishing mandatory wages, benefits, or leave time requirements (such as paid sick leave or family leave). The bill’s sponsor has admitted that he introduced the legislation to preempt attempts by activist organizations (such as this one, made up of moms from around the state) to introduce paid sick leave legislation at the state level. We need your help to push back! Please join us in signing a petition for paid sick days. Let’s show this lame duck session that we’re still paying attention, and that we won’t be silenced by their tactics. Every worker deserves the right to take time off when they or a loved one is sick. So sign our petition, and let Lansing know we’re here.”
