4/10 private-sector workers and 81% of the lowest-wage workers do not have paid sick days;
59% of restaurant workers have reported preparing, cooking, or serving food while sick;
For these workers, the decision to take time off from work to recover from an illness is a choice between their health and their financial security.
The Healthy Families Act – federal legislation that would enable workers to earn up to seven paid sick days a year to recover from an illness or care for a sick family member, or see a doctor.
Revisions to the D.C. Accrued Sick and Safe Leave Act to include tipped restaurant workers.
