. @AsmAguiarCurry @tashaboerner @AsmAutumnBurke FFCRA will expire on Dec 31, 2020. Without FFCRA protections, millions of Californians will only have 3 #paidsickdays to recover from #COVID19 w/o losing their jobs. Pass #SB1383. A COVID-19 diagnosis shouldn't cost you your job.
. @Asm_Nazarian @AsmBillQuirk @AsmRodriguez52 @JimWoodAD2 Passing #SB1383 would improve #healthequity #racialjustice and #economicjustice to approx. 6 mil Californians. Decrease the gap in job protection by passing SB 1383. #PaidFamilyLeave helps families and caregivers thrive!
HEALTHY FAMILIES...STRONG COMMUNITIES...BRIGHT FUTURES!
