Island New Democrats Will Fight For A Minimum Of 10 Paid Sick Days And More
Michelle Neill made the following statement about the King Conservatives and Cameron Liberals voting against 10 paid sick days:
“Although I’m not surprised that the King Government voted against 10 paid sick days, it’s extremely disappointing that the new leader of the Liberals would let her caucus vote against the measure,” says Neill. “This is another example that Islanders are getting a raw deal from the Conservative and Liberal parties.
“New Democrats have always believed that every Island worker should have access to 10 days of annual paid sick leave – however, we can’t stop there. In addition to paid sick leave, Islanders need a $15 minimum wage immediately – PLUS a complete review of the labour standards code that puts workers first,” says Neill. “It’s time that Islanders have a party in the legislature that will fight for ideas that aren’t piecemeal. “
