On the November ballots, City of Milwaukee residents may have to vote on whether private employers should be required to provide paid sick leave for all employees.
Here’s what the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel says about it:
A coalition led by 9to5, the National Association of Working Women, has mounted a petition drive demanding an ordinance to require the city’s private-sector employers to provide paid sick leave for their workers, and to let those workers take sick days to care for ailing family members.
Sounds good, right? Everyone should get paid time off to care for sick family members, right? It’s just the compassionate thing to do, right?
