Welcome Aboard Mr. Secretary

From Tom Perez, the Secretary of Labor: “Hopped across Western Europe and over the English Channel last night and landed in London, where I met this morning with paid leave and living wage advocates who are building innovative partnerships to increase wages in and around London. The United Kingdom already has a paid leave law – I’ll keep repeating this because it’s so astonishing to me: the U.S. is the only industrialized nation without one – but they keep refining the program to try to make it stronger.”

Welcome aboard Mr. Secretary I have been amazed about the fact that this great nation is the only one out of 140 nations without mandated sick leave on a national level for more than five years.
