Not 1 person in Ontario has the legislated right to paid sick days since the Ford government took them away. Nurses, cleaners, paramedics, garbage workers, grocery store workers, and so many more CANNOT AFFORD TO STAY HOME without pay, even when they have symptoms. We must change that! #PaidSickLeaveSavesLives
Join us in demanding at least 7 paid, permanent sick days for everyone - plus (+) an additional 14 during outbreaks.
