Vermont’s paid sick leave bill has received final passage in the legislature and the governor is expected to sign the measure into law. Supporters say the state has made a critical move forward in economic justice. But opponents contend it will hurt small businesses and the state’s economy.
The Vermont Senate last week appeared to give final approval to a bill that mandates paid sick leave. But as WAMC’s North Country Bureau Chief Pat Bradley reports, the chamber will reconsider that vote tomorrow.
