I am a strong supporter of the paid sick leave bill. I urge my senators to please pass the Healthy Workplaces bill, H.187, to make paid sick days a reality for nearly all Vermonters.
I’m from Chittenden County and just moved to Bristol. I worked at the Walmart in Williston for 14-and-a-half years. Pay was $5.75 at first, then they raised it a bit when we complained. I only earned two paid sick days a year. However, you would only get paid for the first sick day after you used the second one, so you were always a bit behind.
