New York City Paid Sick Days Rally

October 2, 2009

New York Paid Sick Days coalition partner Make the Road New York led a march and rally for paid sick days on October 1, 2009. The rally was attended by many city council members. The city ordinance now has 39 co-sponsors in the 51-member council.

The march was covered in the New York Post: Make the road for sick leave.

Correction to NY Post article:  the New York City Paid Sick Days coalition is not negotiating with the mayor over the number of paid sick days.

And in the New York Times: Health Care? Not if You Can’t Leave Work to Get It

Also the New York Daily News: New York workers deserve paid sick leave.
