We stay till the job is done! Paid Sick Days Ordinance in Supreme Court 10.1.10

Greetings from 9to5, NAWW Milwaukee!

On behalf of the staff, interns and board of 9to5 Milwaukee we would like to extend a warm THANK YOU to everyone that showed up for our Women’s Equality Day Speak Out Rally at City Hall on August 26, 2010! Our turn out was astounding, over 100 people present in support of the Healthy Families Act (H.R. 2460, S 1152) and to rally around our 2008 victory at the polls for Paid Sick Days Coalition. We the people showed up and sent a clear message: that we are going to stay in the struggle until the voice of the people is recognized, and respected. Nearly 70% of the Milwaukee voters can’t be ignored! Thank you Milwaukee for always being at the forefront of change! Si Se Puede!

Our work is not over. We have been notified that the Wisconsin Supreme Court will be hearing oral arguments for the Paid Sick Days Ordinance law suit on:

October 1, 2010
2 PM
Washington County Justice Center
432 East Washington StreetWest Bend, WI 53095

We will need YOU to attend this important date. Our strongest tool is showing up in numbers in support of what we voted for! We are most interested in having the people affected by the lack of Paid Sick Days present. Lack of Paid Sick Days affects all of us, but it has most directly affected hospitality workers, food service professionals, CNA’s Medical assistants, parents and those working temporary positions. If this is your position we want to hear from you! We would like to organize as many community members as possible to show up at the court date and be counted as voters that represent the need for Paid Sick Days implementation!

Please contact LaShawndra @ 414.274.0920 or milwaukee@9to5.0rg if you need assistance with transportation, or would like to organize a carpool.
