Employers in Michigan would have to let workers earn paid sick days. That’s under a petition campaign that could launch before the end of the year.
A state elections board says the petition meets all the technical requirements of Michigan law.
A similar drive to put paid sick time on the November ballot folded this past spring.
Danielle Atkinson is one of the organizers.
“We didn’t have enough signatures. Unfortunately, it takes a lot of money to get an issue on the ballot, and we just fell short.”
