On September 17, the Earned Sick and Safe Leave Amendment Act of 2013 was introduced in the DC City Council! The bill had widespread support from Councilmembers.

The bill was co-introduced by:

  • Chairman Phil Mendelson
  • Councilmember Marion Barry
  • Councilmember Mary Cheh
  • Councilmember Muriel Bowser
  • Councilmember Vincent Orange
  • Councilmember Anita Bonds
  • Councilmember Kenyan McDuffie
  • Councilmember Tommy Wells

The bill was also co-sponsored by

  • Councilmember David Grosso
  • Councilmember Jim Graham
  • Councilmember Yvette Alexander

The Washington Post covered the bill introduction with a story about ROC-DC member, Losia Nyankale!

However, this is just the beginning. There is still a long fight ahead of us to ensure that anyone working in DC can earn a day off when they get sick.
