John Andrade, Meridian Pint: We urge Meridian Pint to change its paid sick days policy

    1. Lanciata da

      Paid Sick Days for All

The DC City Council passed the Accrued Sick and Safe Leave Act in 2008, guaranteeing that anyone working in the District can earn up to 7 days of paid sick leave. However, at the last minute, the law was severely weakened to exclude tipped restaurant workers and anyone working on their first year of the job. We believe strongly that these flaws and loopholes in the 2008 law severely limit its effectiveness, and as a result, thousands of DC residents are unnecessarily suffering. Ensuring that restaurant workers can stay home to care for themselves or their loved ones will protect families struggling to get by and keep the public healthy.

If you are a Meridian Pint or Smoke and Barrel customer or employee, share your thoughts in the "Why this is important to you" comment box!

      a) Meridian Pint is one of my favorite restaurants in DC and I would love them even more if their workers received paid sick days! b) All workers deserve paid sick days, no exceptions.

      This is important to me because people deserve paid sick days and patrons deserve uncontaminated food!

      Everyone should have paid sick days, especially restaurant workers. I used to work in restaurants and know that people came to work sick because they could not find replacements. This should not be up to the whims of individual employers.

      Earned sick days is basic good practice- if a place cannot manage that, who knows where else they cut corners.

      I'm a huge fan of both Meridian Pint and Smoke & Barrel and have been to both of them multiple times. But I don't want to eat there if I know that there's a chance I'll get sick because sick workers prepare and serve my food because they can't get paid sick leave. Plus, as a lawyer who works on human rights, I don't want to support a business that treats its employees so poorly. Luckily, there are plenty of other food options along 11th Street and 18th Street. I'll go elsewhere, thanks.
