Healthy Workplaces, Healthy Families for California

Join the Campaign

Every day, millions of California workers are forced to choose between a paycheck and caring for their own health or for a sick family member.  Nearly 6 million people - over 40% of California workers - do not have the right to earn paid sick days.

In 2006, San Francisco became the first city in the country to provide a minimum number of paid sick days for all workers. Washington DC and Milwaukee passed paid sick days in 2008.  The movement for paid sick days is growing and we can make California the first state in the nation to guarantee this right for workers and their families.

73%of California voters support a law to guarantee workers a minimum number of paid sick days. Join California voters in supporting this commonsense policy that promotes healthy workplaces, supports working families and protects public health.
