Town Hall Thursday, August 27th for Paid Sick Leave Initiative

This Thursday, LAANE, with the support of the Neighborhood Council, is hosting a Town Hall informational meeting about their Raise the Wage Initiative.

Raise the Wage and LAANE is one of the major forces behind the recent minimum wage increase that was adopted recently by the LA City Council. This change brings LA into line with many other major cities in California and around the country. But it is only one of the worker initiatives that LAANE is promoting.

At the Town Hall this Thursday, you'll not only get more information about Raise the Wage, but also another proposal to increase earned sick time for employees. This has been a hot topic at the state level and in nearby cities. Many workers only earn limited sick time, if at all, and have to choose between showing up sick or losing a day's pay - or worse. The impact to public health, worker safety, and quality of life can be significant. LAANE is working to encourage LA to improve the minimum earned sick time for employees, and will be talking about the initiative and more at the Town Hall.

The meeting will be this Thursday, August 27th, at 6 pm. It will be held in the community room behind Fire Station 89 at 7063 Laurel Canyon Boulevard south of Sherman Way. The attached flyer in English and Spanish provides some additional information.
