Sharon Terman Talks Paid Sick Days with Public Radio
Senior Staff Attorney Sharon Terman was interviewed Monday, April 1st on Southern California Public Radio's Air Talk program about the recent nationwide spate of legislation guaranteeing paid sick days for workers. In the interview, Sharon explained the urgent need for paid sick days to ensure that low-wage workers are not at risk of losing a day’s pay -- or their jobs -- when they or their loved ones get sick. She went on to detail the ways in which such laws benefit public health, as well as employers, workers and their families.
Sharon and co-panelists Ken Margolies, Senior Associate of the Worker Institute at Cornell University's School of Industrial and Labor Relations, and John Kabateck, Executive Director, California Chapter of the National Federation of Independent Business, discussed recent legislation in New York City, along with San Francisco’s Paid Sick Leave ordinance, and debated the effects of such laws on workers and employers.
