Finally after being introduced almost five years prior, the City of Pittsburgh Paid Sick Day Act went into effect on March 15, 2020. This meant that workers who work for businesses within Pittsburgh city-limits were now eligible to acquire paid sick time. As much of a victory as this was for many, there are still workers who call themselves Pittsburghers who live and work in the Pittsburgh region and still do not have access to paid sick days.
On Tuesday April 21, 2020, Allegheny County Council considered a proposal to grant three to five paid sick days a year to most people who work in the county full-time. Now is the time for restaurant industry workers in Allegheny County to make their voices heard and ensure that County Council gives us a bill that considers our needs!
