New York, NY - Groups Advocating Paid Sick Day Will Target 500,000 New Yorkers
New York, NY - Advocates are turning up the heat on City Council Speaker Christine Quinn over a bill mandating paid sick days for employees â€” attempting to turn her opposition into a political liability as she runs for mayor.
More than a dozen groups backing the measure will target half a million New Yorkers by e-mail Monday, asking them to push Quinn to allow a vote on it. Theyâ€™re also planning to hit 100,000 â€śprimeâ€ť Democratic voters with door-knocks and literature highlighting her position. The Working Families Party is pushing the effort along with liberal groups like MoveOn.org.
