But right now, one in three workers in Maine don’t have access to any paid sick time. When they or a loved one gets sick, they often face impossible choices: do they lose the pay they need to meet basic needs, or go to work sick?
Mainers shouldn’t have to choose between their health and a paycheck. This year the Maine legislature could pass a bill, LD 369, that would guarantee that Maine workers can earn one hour of paid sick time for every 30 hours worked for their employer.
Take action today and tell your legislators to support earned paid sick days for Maine families.
