Support the Healthy Workplace Act

Dear Senator

In Illinois, 1.5 million working people 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 Illinois public policies to catch up with the realities facing working families.

The Healthy Workplace Act (HB 2771) would allow Illinois workers to earn paid sick days to care for themselves or their families.

That's why I'm counting on you to support this vital legislation.

Sincerely,
