Earned Sick Time Act Would Guarantee More Paid Sick Time
According to the Associated Press, Michigan workers would receive mandatory sick days under an initiative filed Tuesday that could appear on the November ballot.
The group Michigan Time to Care turned in more than 380,000 signatures to the Secretary of State's office for a petition to create an "Earned Sick Time act" that would guarantee employees at least one hour of paid sick time for every 30 hours worked.
Businesses with 10 or more workers would be required to provide at least 72 hours of earned sick time per year, while smaller ones would have to grant 40 hours.
Danielle Atkinson, a member of Time to Care coalition said Tuesday, "we launched this campaign to ensure paid sick time for all workers in Michigan." Click on the above link for more information.
