You make minimum wage, live from paycheck to paycheck. A day off means a day without pay. So what do you do when you're sick? It's a question none of us would want to face, and it may be less than fair. But is it up to the government to make it right?
That question - at the heart of a growing movement to force private employers to give sick leave with pay to ALL workers - is the focus of this week's edition of "Due Process."
New York City's on board, and so are Newark and Jersey City, whose new mandates may make a real difference for the working poor. We take to the streets and shops and even Newark airport to talk to workers and employers, while, in the studio, a heated debate features New Jersey Citizen Action Executive Director Phyllis Salowe-Kaye, Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop, and Jack Mozloom of the National Federation of Independent Business.
