Michigan vs Michigan State: Petition for Earned Paid Sick Time!

Date: 
Sat, Oct 7, 2017 - 5:00pm to 8:00pm

City:

Why should the workers of Michigan have to choose between our health and our family's economic security? Over 1 million people in Michigan do not receive paid sick time. This potential ballot proposal would require each worker to receive 1 hour paid sick time in return for 30 hours worked. That's the least we can do in working toward economic justice in our state.

Earned Sick Time Ballot Initiative Info Session

Date: 
Wed, Oct 4, 2017 - 6:00pm to 9:00pm

City:

Michigan United supports the statewide ballot initiative to win earned paid sick time for Michigan workers.

The fact is, it's not right that workers have to choose between taking the time to get well, to take care of sick children, or paying their bills. Everyone deserves the basic dignity that comes with the time to get better or take care of your family.

Petitions are in the field and we need to get organized!
