Illinoisans Can't Wait for Paid Sick Days!

The coronavirus pandemic has exposed a critical flaw in the American economic system: the lack of paid sick leave for all workers. Our Illinois leaders need to fill the gaps left by Congressional legislation and pass:

  • Up to 5 permanent paid sick days for use beyond this crisis
  • Up to 20 paid public health emergency sick days for immediate use for ALL workers, including gig workers and independent contractors

We must ensure the economic and physical wellbeing of ALL Illinois workers, now and in the future.  

Sign our petition below to let our state leaders know that emergency AND permanent paid sick days are essential.

We, the undersigned, are Illinoisans who hail from all over the state, and we need you, our elected leaders, to take real action in the face of the coronavirus pandemic—and to ensure the health and wellbeing of our state for years to come—by guaranteeing paid sick days.
