Businesses push for more data in emotional St. Paul sick leave debate


Stories of sick employees forced to choose between staying home or paying rent rang out in the lobby of St. Paul City Hall on Tuesday, where a group of faith leaders implored officials to pass paid leave regulations.

“It’s not fair that the poorest members of our city are most at risk of falling increasingly behind,” said Pastor Bradley Schmeling of Gloria Dei Lutheran Church.

The religious advocates’ urging comes as St. Paul is delving into the details of a citywide earned sick-leave policy. A task force is reviewing community input and other cities’ regulations, including a proposal the Minneapolis City Council will hear Wednesday.
