Support the Healthy and Safe Families and Workplaces Act

Dear [Decision Maker],

Nearly 170,000 workers in Rhode Island 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 and pay their rent.

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

The Healthy and Safe Families and Workplaces Act (H5413/S290) would allow Rhode Island workers to earn paid sick days to care for themselves and their families.

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

Sincerely,
[Your Name]
