New government data show that, in just two years, the share of people working for private sector businesses in the United States who can earn paid sick time has increased dramatically – to nearly 79 million private sector workers.
As summer officially kicks off and state legislative sessions come to a close, there's much to celebrate in the effort to increase access to paid sick days. Five new laws that will guarantee nearly two million more workers the right to earn paid sick time took effect July 1.
The Maryland Senate has approved a statewide paid sick days standard, bringing the state the closest it has ever been to joining the nearly 40 jurisdictions across the country with paid sick days laws. This is a historic advance for Marylanders, as well as advocates and lawmakers who have been working for years to secure such a standard.
