Today the legislature’s Labor Committee is holding a public hearing on SB 913 An Act Mandating Employers Provide Paid Sick Leave to Employees.
This bill will require any employer with 50 or more employers to provide paid sick leave their employers. Proponents claim the law must be passed to protect workers; however, opponents of the bill say it is just another costly mandate on businesses that could cost us more jobs.
I realize most people are not able to make time to visit the Capitol to testify on this piece of legislation while many feel strongly about it one way or another. I’d like to hear from you.
