Advocates Push For Paid Sick Days Via Ballot Question

In November both Trenton and Montclair will be voting on a ballot question to enact earned sick days. "Residents in both towns will vote...seeking to enact paid sick days for private-sector employees — one hour of sick time for every 30 hours worked. Businesses with less than 10 employees are capped at three days per year. Those with more than 10 cap out at five days. 'We want to make sure people know this is not meant to hurt small businesses. If anything, the data shows it helps to grow small businesses. It grows and strengthens the economy from the inside out,' said Essex County Freeholder Brendan Gill."

When serious illness or a family emergency arises, many workers face a painful choice between caring for children, parents, spouses and partners or showing up for work and earning a day's pay. The inability to provide the nurturing, support and compassion to those close to us hurts our families and weakens our communities.

Everyone benefits when workers are able to balance job obligations and family needs. Giving workers financial security by allowing them to take paid leave to deal with a child's illness or a parent's recovery from a stroke not only improves outcomes for children and families, but also raises worker morale and productivity. Paid "time to care" means strong families, strong workplaces, and strong communities.

The New Jersey Time to Care Coalition is a diverse group of organizations that support initiatives that make sure working families have time to care.
