We are calling on Political Leadership to support Minnesotans in caring for themselves and their loved ones by passing Earned Sick and Safe Time.
Why is this important?
No Minnesotan should have to make the impossible choice of caring for themselves or family, and keeping their paycheck. But without the opportunity to earn sick leave, over a million Minnesota workers suffer the risk of losing their jobs and wages in an effort to get themselves and their families healthy.
Without Earned Sick and Safe Time, all workers are vulnerable, but Minnesota's communities of color are disproportionately affected by these challenges. Our state's leadership needs to reconcile the racial and economic disparities that persists statewide, and support legislation that strives for equity and healthfulness for every Minnesotan.
