Take The Pledge for Earned Sick Time, Vote YES on Question 4

NEU4J joined the fight to Raise the Minimum Wage and pass Earned Sick Time in Massachusetts because we believe in worker justice, we believe in equality in the work place and we believe in having a healthy community. 


This petition is to show YOUR pledge to vote YES to Question 4 this November!


We Have a Right to Good Jobs in Boston As a member of Right to the City and the Raise Up Coalition, we are taking a stance this year to fight for Earned Sick Time.  We are talking protecting close to a million workers in Mass who have no sick time.  We are talking about job security and creating a healthy work place and neighborhood with this benefit.  We are talking about workers having the Right to a good job they can count on when they are sick, have to visit the doctor and or care for a sick family member and not have the fear of losing their job or a days pay. We have already seen success in this campaign with the Minimum Wage victory that will boost workers’ pay from $8 an hr to $11 an hr over the next few years.  Starting in January our minimum wage will be $9 an hr.  NOW, Sick Time needs our help. 


After a massive signature campaign Sick Time is on the ballot THIS YEAR. We want workers, voters and families to support a Vote YES on Question 4 to pass Earned Sick Time for close to a millions workers in Massachusetts.


We want to show we are 20K Strong in our neighborhoods! Can You Pledge to Vote in November for Earned Sick Time and Vote YES on Question 4?
