San Diego extends COVID-19 paid sick leave to workers at companies with 500 or more workers

Raise Up coalition organizer Ana Laura Martínez is quoted in this San Diego Union Tribune article about the City of San Diego’s new emergency sick leave ordinance:

“Ana Martínez of the Center on Policy Initiatives, a local think tank, said the new law would boost public health and create more equity for low-income residents and people of color.

“Ensuring paid sick leave is critical to ensuring workers stay at home,” she said. “COVID-19 has exacerbated and further revealed the existing inequities for workers in the city.”
