A few months ago, we won on minimum wage, raising it to $11 over three years. But there has still been no legislative action on Earned Sick Time.

That’s why we are going to pass it on the ballot on November 4th.

We are asking voters across the Commonwealth to vote YES on Question 4 on November 4th to ensure earned sick time for all Massachusetts workers. Currently, 1 million workers don’t have any access to earned time off. We don’t think people should have to chose between the job they need and being able to take care of themselves or a loved one.

But to pass in November, we’re going to need help to knock on doors and call voters to ask them to vote yes on Question 4. Join us for an event in your area here.


We are knocking on voters to talk to them face-to-face about earned sick time; to have real one-to-one conversations to answer questions, tell stories, and win votes. Join us to knock on doors in your community: Find canvasses here. Don’t see a canvass that works for you? Start your own by clicking here or by contacting your Regional Field Director.
