Paid Sick Leave Passes California Senate

Congratulations to California workers! In the early morning hours of Saturday, August 30th, California became the second state (after Connecticut) to pass a paid sick leave bill, now awaiting signature by Governor Jerry Brown. The bill requires businesses to provide up to three paid sick days per year for employees who work 30 days or more—a great first step towards helping hardworking Californians. Sick days may be used to care for an employee's own illness, or for that of a family member (child, parent, spouse, domestic partner, grandparent, grandchild, or sibling).
