Paid sick time is the law in Oregon. We did it!
Things are moving fast in Salem, but I wanted to make sure you heard about a big win for Oregon working families.
On Friday, I voted with a majority of my colleagues in the House to make Oregon the 4th state in the country to require universal paid sick time for all workers. I was proud to co-carry this proposal on the floor and champion it as a chief sponsor.
This victory didn’t come easy. It was made possible by an outpouring of grassroots support from Oregonians in every corner of our state.
The fight continues on a number of fronts, from raising the minimum wage to shoring up school funding. But we’re making remarkable progress for Oregon’s working families.
Thank you for staying involved, Friends!
