Economic restart plans must include paid sick days for workers: Horwath

HAMILTON — Andrea Horwath, Leader of the Official Opposition NDP, issued the following statement:

“Moving the province into stage two of the re-opening must not mean opening the door to a second wave of COVID-19. Any successful plan for the gradual re-opening of businesses in Ontario must include paid sick days, so that people aren’t faced with the choice of going to work sick or earning enough to put food on the table. Ontarians have worked too hard to flatten the curve to watch all the progress we’ve made together squandered by a premier who refuses to protect workers.”
