Only 20% of American Workers Covered by Pelosi's Sick Leave Bill
by Millionaire Pelosi Serves the Rich
The House of Representatives, under the direction of Speaker Nancy Pelosi, cobbled together a bill this week calling on employers to provide paid sick leave to their workers. See http://clerk.house.gov/evs/2020/roll102.xml However, the 54% of American workers who work for companies with more than 500 employees, such as Amazon, McDonald’s, etc. are not covered. Small companies with less than 50 employees can obtain emergency exemptions. That leaves only 20% covered by this bill.
