    That, "somebody", said that this is awesome and won't have any negative results. He needs to prove that.

    It's also been said that this has been done in other states, which the article proves is inaccurate.

    It's a poll, dude! That's not proof of anything.

    It is done in other states. It isn't a state law in other states, but mandated sick pay is done outside of connecticut.

    Jesus.. Then google it yourself or give up. This isn't moving the discussion forward.

    Then present something to counter it.

    But, it's not state law in any other state, which means that it's on each individual company to offer paid sick leave. Some comapnies can afford it and some can't. Laws like this will hurt the ones who can't. That is my point.

    This is another one of those do-gooder laws that will help big business and hurt small business.

    I posted my position, it's dripping with common sense. It's your turn to prove that I'm wrong.

    Are you completely ignoring the article? The article states that cities have done this. Now one singular state has done it. Perhaps you should do some research before you start panicking over a law that doesn't even affect you.

    Assumption based on ignorance of the structure of the law and common sense are not interchangable.
