The lies have started.
Over the next three months, we can expect to hear an endless string of lies about the earned-sick-leave ordinance that will go to voters in October. But small business owners like me don’t want to listen to the lies of folks who put hard-line ideology before family and fairness.
I support the Healthy Workforce earned sick days act because I’ve always believed that business can’t thrive if you don’t put family first. I’m not just talking about my family. I mean my employees’ families, too.
