JwJ, Action United, and Coalition for Healthy Families wrap City Hall in signed postcards supporting earned sick time!

This morning, Jobs with Justice members joined other activists from the Coalition for Healthy Families inwrapping City Hall in 10,000 signed postcards asking council members to pass the Earned Sick Time bill. That's right, 10,000 postcards--and we had another 8,000 cards left over!

Check out WHYY's coverage of the action. Who is that lovely person pictured in the article? Why, that's Diane Mohney, JwJ activist extraordinare!

Next Thursday, Jobs with Justice will be organizing a clergy vigil outside Council Chambers. Faith leaders will stand and witness to the moral necessity of this legislation.

Want to help out? Good. We need all hands on deck the morning of the final vote on earned sick time--Thursday, June 9. We're going to be loud enough, big enough, and bad enough to get it through to Council: more than 70% of Philadelphians support paid sick days legislation!
