Support earned sick time for every Chicago worker.

I support earned sick time in Chicago for all!

Add your name to tell city leaders: I believe all Chicago workers deserve the chance to earn time off for their own illness or to care for a sick family member. Pass the earned sick time ordinance NOW.

Did you know?

Despite overwhelming support from Chicago voters, 42 percent of private-sector workers in the city do not have access to any sick time.

This includes 80 percent of food service workers in the city who cannot earn time off for illness, meaning employees have no choice but to come into work sick, putting their own health and public health at risk.

No matter what their occupation, every worker should have the ability to leave work to recover from an illness or to care for a sick loved one.

Earned sick time is already required in more than two dozen cities including New York, Seattle, San Francisco, Washington D.C. and Portland.

It’s about time Chicago joins these cities and passes an earned sick time ordinance.
