Maryland needs paid sick days!

Dear Delegate,

Right now, 750,000 working people in Maryland cannot earn a single paid sick day.

When they get sick or a family member needs care, they risk losing pay or even their jobs. Missing just a few days of work can compromise families' entire monthly grocery budgets, their ability to heat their homes or pay their rent.

It's time for Maryland's public policies to catch up with the realities facing working families.

The Healthy Working Families Act (SB 230) would allow more than 512,000 Marylanders to earn paid sick days for the first time, and provide job protection to another 216,000 who live in fear they could lose their jobs if they get sick.

Please support SB 230 and resist any harmful amendments.

Sincerely,
[Your Name]
