Paid Sick Leave Saves Lives

Too many workers and patients still lack the basic protection of paid sick days. Nurses, cleaners, paramedics, garbage workers, grocery store workers, and so many more, cannot afford to stay home without pay, even if they have symptoms of COVID-19.

The Decent Work and Health Network and the Fight for $15 and Fairness are calling on Ontarians to take action on May 21, 2020 to advocate for 21 paid sick days for workers: 7 days permanently plus an additional 14 during outbreaks.
