In light of this COVID-19 outbreak it has come to my attention that a majority of workers in the State of California are only granted 3 paid sick days a year. This is an outrage. Quarantine time for COVID-19 alone is 14 days and most companies are unwilling to pay their employees. It's also expected that during this outbreak any sign of illness we are meant to stay home and recover completely without the aide of medicine for 24 hours. However, having only 3 paid sick days a year does not help those who have bills to pay and rent to pay. With the cost of living always increasing not being paid for the days that we are to be home recovering from any sort of illness is damaging to anyone's finances that don't make six figures and who constantly struggle already. We need to increase the amount of paid sick leave for all employees from just 3 days a year to at least 15 days. Ideally, having 3 days a month that roll over to the next month if they are unused is the better option with it being paid out into the pay check at the end of the fiscal year. However, thinking realistically, having at least 15 days of paid sick leave for every employee would make it a lot easier for those who struggle financially on a daily basis. Please, let's rally together and get this changed. It's barbaric to make people work sick simply because they need the paycheck. This should have been increased years ago. Let's make this change now.
