Philadelphia Joins the Growing List of State/Local Governments Passing Paid Sick Days Laws

February 13, 2015

The city of Philadelphia is set to become the 17th city (along with three states) that requires paid sick leave after Mayor Michael Nutter (D) signed legislation passed yesterday by the City Council. Philadelphia is the second city, after Tacoma, Wash., to pass paid sick days this year so far. Nutter previously vetoed similar laws because he said the economy couldn't handle the change during a recession.
