Yesterday, the San Diego City Council overrode Mayor Kevin Faulconer’s veto and officially passed the earned sick days and minimum wage ordinance. This override means that the Earned Sick Leave-Minimum Wage is once again in place to help hardworking San Diegans who struggle to pay living expenses.
City Council stood up for 280,000 San Diegans who lack sick leave and nearly 200,000 low-wage workers who work hard every day and can’t afford rent and groceries.
Opponents will be in front of grocery stores and other areas in the city attempting to collect 34,000 signatures to repeal the law.
Our fight continues, we need you to get involved to push back against this brazen attack against hard working San Diegans.
What can you do:
- Take the pledge not to sign the anti-sick days anti-minimum wage petitions.
- Inform as many people as possible that the earned sick days and minimum wage policy has passed, and that any signature gathering effort is an attempt to take it away! Tell your friends: DON’T SIGN IT!
- If you see a signature gatherer, call or text the following hotline: (619) 930 – 3300
