"No Correlation Between Paid Sick Time and Job Loss" - New CEPR Study (#sickdays)

Sickness remediesAs you get ready to watch today's Paid Sick Days Hearing, you might want to take a minute to read the CEPR's latest report, "Paid Sick Days Don't Cause Unemployment," which shows that countries implementing paid sick time policies do not experience job loss as a result. In fact, there are savings created by implementing paid sick time, both from a lack of presenteeism and by limiting the spread of contagious illness.

Once you read the report (or even if you don't), please take action:

  1. Ask Congress to pass the Healthy Families Act, ensuring that everyone who works has paid sick time to care for themselves and their families. Please write an email, Tweet your friends (you can use @MomsRising 's short tag http://is.gd/XgBT), or make a phone call today.
  2. You can also join us on Facebook to support earned sick time in Pennsylvania and in Philadelphia, or become part of our coalition of advocates and businesses working to ensure all Philadelphians and Pennsylvanians have the opportunity to earn sick time.
