Urge Congress to Support the Healthy Families Act!

United Steelworker Director of Women of Steel Ann Flener is asking Steelworkers to support the Healthy Families Act and make Thursday, February 12 a paid sick days day to remember.  People can help by adding their name on the action link below.

On behalf of more than 40 million working people without paid sick days, we urge Congress to support the Healthy Families Act. This important legislation would guarantee up to seven paid sick days per year for workers to recover from their own illness or care for a sick family member.
