When serious illness or a family emergency strikes, many workers face a painful choice between caring for children, parents, spouses and partners or showing up for work and earning a day’s pay. The inability to provide the nurturing, support and compassion to those close to us hurts our families and weakens our communities. Everyone benefits when workers are able to balance job obligations and family needs.
That’s why NJCA has been at the forefront of New Jersey’s push for Paid Sick Days ordinances on the municipal, state, and national level. Thanks to NJCA and our coalition partners, workers in 8 municipalities in New Jersey now have access to paid sick days, and a statewide bill is gaining momentum.
