In November, voters in Denver may have the opportunity to make their city the third in the U.S. to require businesses to provide paid sick days to their workers, after supporters gathered three times the required signatures to move forward with a ballot initiative. Currently, both San Francisco and Washington, DC have paid sick day requirements, while Gov. Dan Malloy (D) signed legislation yesterday making Connecticut the first state with a state-wide paid sick day law. Milwaukee also approved a paid sick day law via ballot initiative, but it was recently overturned by Wisconsin’s Republican-controlled legislature.
