The Peace and Freedom Party's San Bernardino County Central Committee has endorsed AB 2716. This bill would require California employers to provide a minimum number of sick days to employees. The bill is sponsored by ACORN (Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now), California AFL-CIO and others. This is common-sense, public health legislation that would benefit all parties involved - businesses, workers and consumers.
Sick employees who are financially forced to go to work spread their illnesses to both other employees and customers. This leads to additional labor lost to businesses and a lowering of consumer confidence in those businesses.
