Event Details


Do you disagree with Nutter’s veto of the Earned Sick Days Bill? Come out and declare your independence from the veto and urge Council members to do the same!


On June 28th Mayor Nutter vetoed the Philadelphia Earned Sick Days Bill.  This bill passed City Council on June 16th.  Despite that a majority of Council and over 70% of Philadelphian’s support this bill the Mayor vetoed it.  This bill would have given over 210,000 Philadelphians that lack any the opportunity to earn paid sick days.


We are asking supporters to come out and show their independence from the Mayor’s decision and help us ask members of City Council to show their own independence in voting for an override of the veto at the next Council Session in the fall.

 


WHEN: Wednesday, July 6th at 12:00

WHERE:Free Speech Zone on Independence Mall at 5th and Market Streets (Tentative)


 

Come on your lunch break, bring some signs, tell your friends, and help us show the Mayor and City Council the support for this important bill.  Let them know we disagree with the Mayor’s decision and Philadelphia’s workers need earned sick days.
