EJC in the News: Moms Rise Up, Laud Organizations for Paid Sick Day Policies
Eighty percent of low-wage workers do not get any paid sick days, according to MomsRising. Yet some employers have embraced the Accrued Sick and Safe Leave Act. Teaism, a local D.C. chain that serves specialty teas and Asian food, has been a strong supporter of the act since the very beginning. To reward Teaism for its support and to encourage other employers to follow suit, MomsRising, along with organizations such as the DC Employment Justice Center, Restaurant Opportunities Center of DC, and DC Jobs with Justice, organized a Carrotmob of Teaism’s Penn Quarter location on November 13.
