Support Paid Sick Days. Pass the Healthy Families Act!

Dear Member of Congress,

On behalf of millions of working people without paid sick days, I urge you to support the Healthy Families Act.

This important legislation would allow workers to earn up to seven paid sick days per year to recover from their own illness or care for a sick family member.

As President Obama has said: "Forty-three million workers have no paid sick leave. ... And that forces too many parents to make the gut-wrenching choice between a paycheck and a sick kid at home. ... Send me a bill that gives every worker in America the opportunity to earn seven days of paid sick leave. It's the right thing to do."

Please support the Healthy Families Act today.

Sincerely,
[Your Name]
