Sen. Harding, Sen Sampson slam Dems’ “tone-deaf” paid sick days for all proposal

February 21, 2024

For Immediate Release

Senate Republican Leader Stephen Harding and Sen. Rob Sampson, Ranking Senator on the Labor and Public Employees Committee, issued the following statement with regard to the Senate Democrats’ priority bill proposal to offer paid sick days to all private sector workers.

“It’s tone deaf. It also reveals how out of touch majority Democrats are. Burdening Connecticut job creators with unfunded mandates is a top priority for Senate Democrats. Big government telling mom and pop shops what they must do and forcing them to comply is their priority. This proposal will have a chilling effect on economic growth and crush jobs. The majority Democrats view that destruction as ‘leadership’.”
