It's time for paid sick days in Rhode Island

Dear [Decision Maker],

Nearly 170,000 workers in Rhode Island cannot earn a single paid sick day.

I urge you to get back to the statehouse to finish the people's work and finalize paid sick days legislation as soon as possible.

When workers 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, or their ability to heat their homes or pay their rent.

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

Please make paid sick days a reality for Rhode Island workers.

Sincerely,
[Your Name]
