The first MontCo Paid Sick Days hearing is slated for Thursday night. Lawmakers will hear testimony and debate the policy, and supporters are urged to attend and testify. “No one should have to choose between their health and their job,” says Jews United for Justice, a member of the Maryland Campaign for Paid Sick Days. “We can't just wait for change, or it will never happen,” JUFJ adds. “The Chamber of Commerce is organizing the opposition to come out in force, and signing people up to testify against our bill. We need a strong community voice supporting workers' dignity and well-being.” Supporters will meet up beforehand at Rockville's California Tortilla; see calendar for details. To take action now, sign a petition pledging your support for #MDpaidsickdays.
