The Harford Chamber of Commerce is nothing but a Right Wing Republican political lobby. Take everything they say with a grain of salt. They are not interested in the best welfare and health of the average worker. They represent the avarice greed of bad employers. That’s why they oppose sick leave reform for small business interests (HB1/SB 230).
Even the grand old Wal-Mart gets away with a measure of this indecent behavior everyday. At Wal-Mart you earn sick leave after a year of employment. But…Wal-Mart pays no one sick leave on the first day they are sick.. After a year you have to burn personal/vacation time for the first day of sickness.
The richest welfare corporation in America exploits all their workers out of sick leave on the first day they are sick. Thats sick and sad inhumane greed.
Thats the fight the Harford County Chamber of Commerce is fighting. Exploit workers out of basic sick leave benefits.
I say throw every Harford politician in Annapolis out of office that votes against HB 1 or SB 230.
