San Francisco, the new Netherlands?!?!

17 Feb

WHOA! So my Internet has crapped out these past few days, and I completely missed this one.

San Francisco is the first place in the COUNTRY to require employers to provide PAID sick leave.

Businesses in the city of San Fran must provide one hour of sick leave for every 30 hours worked. With a cap of either 40 or 72 hours, depending on the size of the business. AND, people can use their sick leave to care for domestic partners.

So, next, I call for some paid maternity leave. Anyone?
