The Maine Small Business Coalition is supporting LD 369 that would ensure that all Maine workers earn at least one hour of paid sick leave for every 30 hours worked, up to five days per year, that they can use to recover from an illness or take care of a sick family member.
As small business owners, we advocate for policies that promote responsible economic development, environmental stewardship, and investment in community. We are the backbone of Maine’s economy, and we help provide a political voice for Maine’s small business community. We believe that good economic policy works both for small business owners and the customers they serve.
The Maine Small Business Coalition, a group of more than 5,000 small business owners across the state, has launched a campaign to guarantee earned paid sick days for workers to strengthen Maine’s workforce, businesses, and communities.
