Across the country, cities are leading the movement for paid sick days. In 2011, Seattle became one of the first cities to pass a strong paid sick and safe days ordinance. A strong coalition of grassroots leaders, workers, businesses, and policy makers organized for the successful passage of Seattle’s paid sick days bill.
Seattle’s grassroots paid sick days movement is a model for grassroots leaders working across public health. See our interactive case study for lessons from the successful movement.
