MNA is a proud member of the Massachusetts Paid Sick Leave Coalition which held a rally and lobby day at the State House in March. Worcester school nurse Tami Hale, RN, was a featured speaker at the event. She spoke passionately about the importance of earned paid sick time for families and their children. Now more than ever Massachusetts workers and families need earned sick time. Nearly 1 million hard working people in Massachusetts—almost one-third of workers—are forced to go to work or send their children to school sick because they can’t risk losing their jobs or wages.
