NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — San Francisco passed a paid sick leave measure and so did the state of Connecticut. The issue, however, is still on the table in New York City.
Those pushing for it in the Big Apple spoke out at City Hall on Friday.
Public Advocate Bill de Blasio wants to know why it’s taking the city so long to vote on a bill that would affect roughly one million residents.
“By my count, it is two years and 361 days we have been waiting for a vote,” he said Friday.
