The U.S. Women’s Chamber of Commerce has just posted a fact sheet, “How Women-Owned Businesses Can Support Paid Sick Days“, expressing support for federal action to guarantee a minimum standard of paid sick days.
The USWCC statement from Margot Dorfman, CEO:
“The U.S.Women’s Chamber of Commerce supports a minimum standard for paid sick days. Healthy businesses need healthy workers, which is precisely what paid sick days accomplish. Women-run businesses are on the forefront by typically offering such benefits because they understand the needs of working women and their families. Paid sick days are an investment in our families, our workforce, and our health that we cannot afford to do without.” — Margot Dorfman, CEO, Women’s Chamber of Commerce
