Support Paid Sick Leave

All South Carolinians have one thing in common: sometimes, they or their loved ones get sick. However, many workers lack access to paid sick days, which can put them in the difficult position of having to choose between working while sick or taking unpaid time off, jeopardizing their paychecks and in some instances, their jobs.

Time and again, studies have shown that paid sick leave laws benefit workers and their communities. Ensuring that workers are able to take paid leave when they or their loved ones are sick reduces the spread of illness in the workplace, schools, and daycares.

Access to paid sick leave also makes workers more likely to seek preventative care, an important part of maintaining one’s overall health.
