Think all workers deserve paid time off to see a doctor or take care of a
sick child? The Chamber of Commerce doesn't - they're lobbying hard to
defeat a bill that would guarantee that every worker in DC gets paid sick
Come out and tell the DC Council to vote YES for Paid Sick and Safe Days for
Tuesday, Feb. 5th
9:30am or Noon
Wilson Building, 1350 Pennsylvania Ave, NW - 5th floor
Wear Blue or Purple to show your support.
Want to do more? We're asking supporters to make 4 calls to support paid
sick and safe days:
1) Council Chair Vincent Gray - 724-8032
2) Council member Kwame Brown - 724-8174
3) Your ward council member - 724-8000
(This is the main Council number - ask for your council member by name or
4) Mayor Adrian Fenty - (202) 727- 1000
What to say:
"My name is ________ and I live at ___________. I am calling because I
believe all workers in DC should get paid sick and safe days to be able to
take care of themselves and their families. Please support the Accrued Sick
and Safe Leave Act and make sure it covers all types of workers, including
part-time workers. This bill is good for workers, good for the community,
and good for businesses who will have healthier workplaces."
