City Inside/Out: Paid Sick Leave
City Inside/Out: Paid Sick Leave
Since September 1st, Seattle workers have started to accumulate paid time off under a new city law. Is the Paid Sick and Safe Time ordinance a boost for public health or a burden for local businesses? Will retailers increase their prices to absorb the new expense? We get both sides from Cupcake Royale founder Jody Hall and Seattle restaurateur John Schmidt. We also hear from Marilyn Watkins of the Economic Opportunity Institute about how other cities have fared after adopting a similar law. For more perspective, we are joined in studio by Mike Chin, Enforcement Manager of the Seattle Office of Civil Rights, George Allen, Senior Vice President of the Greater Seattle Chamber of Commerce, and Joe Fugere, Founder of Tutta Bella.
