How Much Sick Leave at MPS?

Owen's thread on the "Sick Leave Gift" referendum is here.

The Reliable Lefty, Folkbum, provides a shocking bit of information in the combox:

This vote will not change MPS’s sick leave policy. If the resolution goes to voters and it passes, it will not change MPS’s sick leave policy.

The referendum question will provide that all employers in the City of Milwaukee WILL:

...offer employees an hour of paid sick leave for every 30 hours worked

according to a story written by G. Pabst of the Milwaukee JS.

That amounts to ~70 hours/year of sick-leave--just under two 40-hour weeks--for a full-time employee.

Not a bad plan, folks.

You'd rather have sick teachers in the classroom with 24 young immune systems?

The kids get sick b/c OTHER kids show up while ill, Jay. You know that just as well as I do.

Like the rest of us, teachers should show up at the office with a common cold.
