Why workers should be offered paid sick time: Opinion (August 16, 2014)

By Chibuzo Njeve, owner of Springview Pharmacy, The Star-Ledger

Next year my small business, Springview Pharmacy, will celebrate its 20th anniversary. We have been proud to provide a critical service to Irvington residents, and to play a small but vital role in keeping Irvington healthy. That core mission of keeping our community strong and healthy is why I support a proposed local law that would give all private sector workers the right to earn paid sick days over time.
