TRENTON, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — A bill is underway in New Jersey that would give mandatory paid sick leave to workers.
As WCBS 880’s Marla Diamond reported, as expected, the bill is getting push back from small businesses. Laurie Ehlbeck, director of the National Federation of Independent Businesses, says she’s been fielding concerned calls.
“A small employer has a particular amount of money coming in,” Ehlbeck said. “So if some type of unfunded mandate is going to cost them more money, it’s going to be reflected somewhere else.”
