Councilman Nick Licata

Friday (10/21/11) at 6:30 AM PST, the Center for American Progress and the National Partnership for Women & Families are hosting a discussion on the growing momentum for paid sick days laws. Paid, job-protected sick days provide a critical workplace standard that promotes the economic security of U.S. workers and their families and safeguards the health of our communities.
