Labor Day is a day to celebrate the achievements and hard work of America’s workforce. Here are five ways you can thank and support all the workers in your life.
San Antonio now joins more than 40 states and cities across the country in passing a paid sick time law. With the passage of San Antonio’s ordinance, workers in seven of the country’s eight most populous cities now have the legal right to earn paid sick time!

Duluth’s paid sick time law will take effect on January 1, 2020.

For too many mothers and those that love them, balancing family and work is a constant struggle, from staying healthy during pregnancy, to breastfeeding while working, to getting a sick parent or child to the doctor. This Mother’s Day, it’s time for more than cards and flowers—let’s honor our mothers with the policy changes working families need. We won’t stop fighting until all of us can be there for our families like Ileana was.
The challenge to Austin’s ordinance claims, among other things, that Texas’s minimum wage law limits the city’s authority to pass a paid sick and safe time law. Fortunately for Austin workers, the state’s minimum wage law—applying as it does to minimum wage, and not other employee benefits—does no such thing.
Workers can now use their sick time to care for a more diverse range of family members, as well as to address needs arising out of domestic or sexual violence. All workers deserve the right to care for themselves and their families, no matter what their families look like. We’ll keep fighting here in New York and across the country to ensure that right is a reality for all our families.
