Democrats in Lansing have introduced bills in both the house and senate that would help all working Michiganders have paid sick leave

The bill introduced would give an hour of paid sick leave for every 30 hours said employee works.

This isn’t the first time bills similar to these have been introduced to the Michigan legislature which is Republican controlled.  Senator Jim Ananich, D-Flint, believes that it’s important to keep trying to get paid sick time for all residents working in the state.

In a statement to WZZM:

“For the many Michigan residents who cannot afford to lose a day’s wages, earned sick leave provides the opportunity to get better without jeopardizing their jobs,” Ananich said. “We know that happy and healthy employees are more productive in the workplace -- when workers can stay home to get better, everyone wins.”
