Paid sick days for all

No matter what our job is, we’re human. We get sick and our loved ones do too. All of us deserve dignity, respect, and the tools we need to take care of ourselves and our loved ones – no exceptions.

That’s why, during the 2023 legislative session, we’re organizing together to pass Earned Sick & Safe Time (HF 19/SF 34) and Paid Family & Medical Leave (HF 2/SF 2) in Minnesota so none of us are forced to choose between a job and our health.

Right now, too many corporations are allowed to make money off of us while treating us as disposable and denying us the time we need to care for our health and our families. After enduring a pandemic together, we’re even clearer: our economy, our jobs, and our institutions must be meant to care for us – not keep us stuck in an endless, harmful cycle of production and consumption. 

Act now

With a blue trifecta at the state legislature, this is the moment for state lawmakers to deliver paid time to care for ALL Minnesotans. Organize with us to call on our elected leaders to put people before corporate profits.

πŸ“’ Email your legislators right now and tell them it’s time to pass Earned Sick & Safe Time (HF 19/SF 34) statewide. Customize your message to make the biggest impact. 

✏ Take 2 minutes to fill out our survey on paid sick days. We want to make legislators see the reality of how having access to paid sick days – or being denied access β€“ impacts Minnesotans. Your experience is important.
