As the tripledemic of COVID-19, flu, and RSV are peaking simultaneously, workers are still being forced to choose between staying home when they’re sick, and making ends meet. A lack of permanent, adequate paid sick leave increases community transmission and strain on our health care systems.
The best way to ensure safe and healthy workplaces is to provide universal, adequate, and permanent paid sick days. That means 10 permanent, employer-paid sick days.
Working when sick isn’t “working for workers.” It’s time for Ford’s Conservative government to finally heed the longstanding advice of health experts and workers’ advocates. It’s time to implement 10 permanent, employer-paid sick days NOW!
Tell Monte McNaughton and Doug Ford we need 10 paid sick days.
