Seattle City Council: Don’t let big business water down paid sick days

This petition made change with 406 supporters!


On August 10th, the Health Committee of the Seattle City Council voted unanimously to pass the Paid Sick Days ordinance out of committee and on to the full Council. Voting ‘yes’ were Council members Sally Clark, Jean Godden, Nick Licata and Mike O’Brien.

But we can’t celebrate just yet. Big business lobbyists are putting pressure on the Council to water down the ordinance with special exemptions and corporate giveaways.

Watering down this ordinance so that fewer working people have paid sick days or there are barriers to using them is simply unacceptable.

Sign this petition to thank the Council members who already voted ‘yes’ on a strong bill – and send an email to the full Council telling them to stand up for working people by passing the Health committee’s paid sick days proposal.
