Supporters rally for paid sick time in Michigan

LANSING, MI (WNEM) –

Supporters of paid sick time for workers held rallies across the state Tuesday.

“I feel passionate about this because I have some children that have found it very difficult to find jobs with paid sick time,” Phyllis Jacob said.

Jacob is rallying for her kids and others across Michigan. She teamed up with the coalition group MI Time to Care, which is fighting to ensure all workers in the state can get paid when they are too sick to do their job.
