Mass. lawmakers should pass sick-leave bill
A whopping one million people in this state do jobs that come with no sick pay. They work in cafeterias and daycare centers, as home health care aides and sales clerks, most of them in low-wage jobs where they can’t afford to lose wages. So they heave themselves into workplaces when they shouldn’t be around people, or they send kids to school on Tylenol and a prayer. It was ever thus. But that doesn’t make it any less messed up.
