NEWS RELEASE: Legislators, Workers, & Faith Leaders Speak Out on Urgent Need for Paid Sick Time

Minnesota’s Earned Sick and Safe Time bill would allow workers to accrue up to 48 hours of paid sick time per year. Paid sick time means being able to comfort a sick child, go to the doctor, take time to address domestic abuse, get a COVID test, or seek safety without having to worry about losing pay or getting fired. Minneapolis, St. Paul, and Duluth already have paid sick day ordinances in place.
