Tell the Legislature: pass universal paid sick time!

To be delivered to The Oregon State House and The Oregon State Senate

Petition Statement

Oregon workers shouldn’t have to choose between paying the bills and staying home when they or their child gets sick. Period. Pass universal paid sick time without delay!
There are currently 131 signatures. NEW goal - We need 200 signatures!

Petition Background

When your child is too sick to go to school, you often have no choice but to stay home with them. It’s not a choice at all -- it’s your obligation as a parent.

Yet, for too many of Oregon’s working families living paycheck-to-paycheck, a sudden illness or accident could spell financial disaster. It means lost wages, or even a lost job. It could mean coming up short on your rent payment, and even eviction.

Oregon workers shouldn’t have to choose between paying the bills and staying home when they or their child gets sick.

Sign the petition: tell the Legislature to make paid sick time a reality for all Oregonians!
