Paid sick leave is an essential workplace protection, especially during the pandemic, because it allows workers to stay home when they are sick without losing pay.
The House already passed the HEROES Act, which would extend paid sick leave protections from the Families First Coronavirus Response Act through December 2021, and ensure they include the millions that were left out the first time around. But the Senate’s HEALS Act fails to extend paid sick leave at all!
As Congress enters into negotiations on a final package, they must include critical items for worker health and public safety. With your help, we can focus lawmakers on the real needs to curb this pandemic.
Tell your Senator: We are all in this together. Actions—not words—are what will help workers and their families and communities.
