Through its NutterWatch campaign, the Coalition for Healthy Families and Workplaces has been counting down the days until Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter (D) is required to act upon a new earned sick days bill, making the case that the legislation should be passed. Nutter has until April 4 to sign the bill or it will become law without his signature. If the law goes into effect, it would pave the way for 200,000 of the city's workers to have the opportunity to earn sick days at work.
Nutter previously vetoed a similar bill. NutterWatch will keep track of stories related to the bill until April 4 or the bill is signed into law. Supporters of the legislation can sign a related petition.
