Paid Sick Days for B.C. Now!

Here are some talking points to think about while you are on your call:

  • I’m a worker in B.C. and I support paid sick days for all.
  • Workplaces are by far, the largest contributor to the spread of COVID-19.
  • But today, only 10 per cent of low wage and frontline workers have paid sick days
  • That means the people we rely on to keep B.C. moving are having to choose between cutting their paycheque or staying home with symptoms.
  • It saves lives!
  • Remember to say thank you, and that you would like to hear back.

Why the Canada Recovery Sickness Benefit is not enough:

  • Workers must apply for the CRSB after they’re sick
  • Restricted to people who earned at least $5000 in the last 12 months
  • Denied if workers miss less than 50% of their work week
  • Temporary and restricted to COVID-19
