Pennsylvania Moms Have Super Powers

Some PA state legislators in Harrisburg want to block cities and local governments in the state from implementing paid sick days bills or other forms of paid leave that aren't already guaranteed at the state level.  

This bill would remove power from locally elected officials and strip cities and counties of their right to adopt paid sick day policies that benefit their communities - worst of all, they take power away from us to effect change at the most local level.

PA moms are powerful! Together we can stand up for Pennsylvania families and democracy and stop this legislation. 

Tell your state representatives to vote NO on HB 1807.

Dear Pennsylvania State Legislator,

Moms (and the people who love us) from across the state of Pennsylvania urge you to protect Pennsylvania families and our democracy by saying 'NO' on HB 1807. This bill threatens our ability to pass much needed paid sick day laws at the local level.

Right now, 4 in 10 Pennsylvanian workers cannot use a single sick day, no matter how hard they work. Moms make difficult choices about taking care of sick children or keeping their jobs. People go to work in our restaurants, child care center, and nursing homes while ill, because they have no alternative. This puts all of us at risk - and it is just plain wrong.

We need state-wide paid sick days, but we also need to let local municipalities address the urgent need for sick days that their residents face. Please protect PA families and our democracy. Vote NO on HB 1807.

Thank you for all you do.

    Help me stop HB 1807.
    Dear Friend,

    The Pennsylvania state legislature is considering a bill that would block our local communities from passing earned sick time laws, even though 4 in 10 PA workers cannot take a single sick day no matter how hard they work. This bill is bad for our families and bad for our democracy.

    I signed a petition to try and stop the bill - will you sign as well?
