Letter to the editor: Support paid sick days

Support paid sick days

I am in full support of the Healthy Workplace Bill H. 187. I believe passing the bill will help both workers and employers live more thriving lives.

Employees need paid sick days. As an employer, you don't get quality work from people that are forced to come to work sick. Also, people are likely to stay longer at a workplace if they receive good benefits; this actually strengthens the business. When businesses treat their employees with respect their business flourishes and as a result employees will give both 100 percent effort and longevity to their employer.

All humans deserve the right to take a sick day. Senator Brian Campion and Senator Dick Sears, please vote for the Healthy Workplace Bill.

— Harold and Carol Brace Bennington
