Spotlight Webcast: Paid Sick Days in San Francisco

Features an interview with Robert Drago, Institute for Women's Policy Research

More than forty percent of private sector workers in the United States have no access to paid sick days. San Francisco was the first city in the nation to adopt a paid sick days ordinance. A study by the Institute For Women's Policy Research (IWPR) has been released examining the effects of the law on employers and employees.


Robert Drago, Ph.D., director of research at IWPR and one of the report's authors, discussed the outcomes with Spotlight's Jodie Levin-Epstein.
