Opinion: Paid sick time could prevent hardship
All Vermonters deserve the right to earn sick time at their jobs. We need to pass the Healthy Workplaces bill, H.187 — and ask that the Senate pass it into law when they return to Montpelier this January.
Our family was directly impacted by my lack of pay during my son’s illness. I went without five weeks of pay over the course of five months while my son spent weeks in the hospital. My lack of income during that time has resulted in significant financial hardship this fall.
