Today, Philadelphia became the largest city in the country to provide its workers with paid sick days!

Passing this bill would not have been possible without the leadership of restaurant workers and ROC-Philadelphia. Restaurant workers were the largest contingent present at today’s vote. This bill requires local companies to offer one hour of sick leave for every 40 hours worked. Philly joins only 4 other cities that have similar paid sick leave policies in place.

Watch a restaurant worker speak up for paid sick leave here.
