36. require mandatory paid sick time for those who work in new paltz
Pass a Mandatory Sick Time Law requiring New Paltz business owners to pay sick time to all employees. Employees would earn one hour of sick time for every twenty hours worked, to be used at their discretion. People going to work sick (especially in a restaurant-heavy community) because they can’t afford to miss work is a public health issue.
