Maryland representatives stand up for paid sick days at White House Summit

Washington turns the spotlight on working families


Representatives from Working Matters, the Maryland Campaign for Paid Sick Days, recently spent the day in Washington, D.C. for the White House Summit on Working Families.

JOTF is a founding member of Working Matters, which advocates for a state-wide policy to ensure Maryland workers have access to paid sick leave.

Right now, more than 700,000 people in our state are unable to earn paid sick days. This means thousands of Marylanders routinely have to choose between their health or the health of their children, and their economic stability.

Sign our petition to get involved and learn more about the Maryland campaign for paid sick days.
