Bo Delp on the Case for Paid Sick Leave


People United features Bo Delp of the Workers Defense Project on the case for paid sick leave for all workers.  (On February 16, 2018, the Austin City Council voted 9 to 2 in favor of an ordinance requiring all private employers to grant an hour of paid sick leave for every thirty hours a worker has spent on the job, capped at eight full sick days per year.  Ora Houston of Council District 1 and Ellen Troxclair of Council District 8 were the dissenters.)
