    Re: Connecticut to Pass Paid Sick Leave Law

    I think it's awesome - I would have, then, been able to keep my job instead of quitting and becoming a stay at home mom when my kids were sick often. . . I simply couldn't afford to pay daycare when I had to miss days.

    Just because people are poor, in college - or for whatever reason have ot take a lesser-paying job doesn't mean they have no such thing as sickness and illness.

    You can look into yourself, you know. The article very clearly states who else has tried this in the past.

    That's too difficult. Hysterical over-reaction is MUCH easier.

    I'm saying it's not a good thing to make a small business pay out money, with no return. If someone tells me that it's not, it's on them to provide the information to back that up.

    I'm not going to provide docs to back up my point, because it's just plain ol' common sense.

    So, cutting into a businesses profits, even more, during a depression is an ok thing to do? This is so awesome for small businesses, that the business lobbies were all against. Am I close?

    I've already stated my position. It would be damned hard to argue against allowing small businesses keeping more of their profits. No doubt you'll try, though.

    That "somebody" merely quoted the article, which stated exactly what he said. If it's in the original article he wasn't saying anything new, and therefore didn't have a point to prove at all.
