When you work hard in Maine, you should be able to care for yourself and your family when illness strikes. But nearly one out of every two full-time workers in Maine is denied even one single paid sick day. That number rises for the working poor. In fact, 3 out of 4 low-wage working families don\'t have coverage. If we believe in family values, it\'s time to value families. Next year, Maine lawmakers will consider \"An Act to Care for Working Families.\" This legislation will guarantee a minimum number of paid sick days to use for yourself, or an ill child, parent, or spouse. By signing this petition you will be adding your voice to a growing list of paid sick day supporters. Your name will be delivered to your legislator to ensure that they know their constituents support working families. I support working families.
