Paid Sick Leave Still Alive In OR Legislature

If you don't feel well enough to come to work, you call in sick and stay home until you feel better.  That's the ideal situation. 

The reality is that many people come to work when they're sick, some because they do not get paid when they do not work. 

A coalition of groups continues to push for paid sick leave for all workers in Oregon through a bill in the Senate. 

Coalition Co-Chair Andrea Paluso joins us to talk about the finer points of the law, and the strenuous effort to pass it.
