Family Caregivers Need Paid Sick Days

Millions of working people provide care for family members who are elderly, have disabilities or are chronically ill. Many of these family caregivers are struggling to manage both their caregiving responsibilities and the jobs they need to support their families, and they receive little help from their employers or public policies.


Seattle, Washington

In September 2011, the Seattle City Council passed and Mayor Michael McGinn signed the city's paid sick days law, making paid sick days available to more than 150,000 workers in Seattle who previously had none.
