    Paid sick leave could be a sticking point as Senate considers coronavirus relief bill

    Paid sick leave could be a sticking point as Senate considers coronavirus relief bill










    Brendan Morrow


    ,The Week• March 16, 2020













    The Senate is expected this week to pass a coronavirus relief bill that has President Trump's approval, but it could potentially be held up a bit.


    The House of Representatives early on Saturday passed an economic relief bill negotiated between House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin in response to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Trump said he "fully" supports the bill, which provides free coronavirus testing and requires companies with fewer than 500 employees provide paid sick leave.


    The Senate is expected to pass the coronavirus bill after Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) canceled a planned recess. But Bloomberg reports that action could be delayed "up to several days" as the bill is "running into resistance from some Republicans worried about the impact of a temporary paid sick leave provision on small businesses."
    Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wisc.) is one of those senators objecting paid sick leave provision, saying he hopes the Senate passes a "bill that does more good than harm — or, if it won't, pass nothing at all." Bloomberg notes that "Senate rules allow any one senator to delay a final vote for days." Mnuchin said over the weekend said "we'll work with the Senate on whatever minor changes we need."


    In addition, Bloomberg reports the House has to "pass technical corrections to the bill, which was drafted on the fly," which "adds another wrinkle that could slow final action in the Senate."

    NO!!!!

    If they are legitimately "sick" with COVID-19 then let them get UNEMPLOYMENT benefits and let the employer make up the difference in pay.

    Unemployment is already taken out of their paychecks, they paid into it.

    I had knee surgery long ago, out for 6 weeks. I got Unemployment, I handed that check over to my employer, and they gave me my full paycheck in exchange. My company was very generous to do this for me.

    That is fair to the employee AND the employer to offset the costs to the employer.

    As a TEMPORARY solution due to COVID-19 only.

    Steven Mnuchin should be TAPPING into the Unemployment Benefit resources!

    Not bankrupting employers with FREE sick leave.

    Many people have sick leave, they take it as soon as they get it and are NOT sick!

    If they do not have sick leave program, let them apply for "temporary" Unemployment.

    We all know people who do this and take their sick leave for a day off.

    That is not fair to those who save their sick leave when they need it, and now have to use it first and the irresponsible empolyees took theirs and now get another paycheck too.

    Where does the money come from to pay unemployment?

    The U.S. Department of Labor's Unemployment Insurance program is funded through unemployment insurance taxes paid by employers and collected by the state and federal government.

    The taxes are part of the often-discussed payroll taxes all employers pay.


    Where Do Unemployment Benefit Funds Come From?

    NO AMNESTY

    Don't reward the criminal actions of millions of illegal aliens by giving them citizenship.

    Cut off ALL foreign aid and give every legal American who is a citizen, adult, $10,000 check that we do not have to pay back.

    It is our money, not the rest of the worlds.

    This will help all across the board immediately. Students, moms, seniors, vets, single people, sick people, homeless, married people, all of us!!!


    NO BILLION DOLLAR BAIL OUTS TO BIG CORPORATIONS!
