Diane Brennan, owner of the


Fusion Salon on Snelling Avenue, began offering all of her
hair stylists paid sick leave at
the beginning of the year.
It was the right thing to do,
said Brennan, standing in a City
Hall hearing room full of likeminded activists, employees
and employers. Of course,
theres a cost to it, but by retaining qualified talent, I think that
it pays for itself.
In St. Paul, city officials hope
other private employers see it
that way, too. The city council
on Wednesday waded headlong
into a national debate over mandating paid sick leave.
The council voted to ask the
Human Rights and Equal Economic Opportunity Commission
to convene a task force on the
issue. The goal is to propose an
ordinance this summer that
requires earned sick and safe
time for workers in St. Paul. The
new rules would take effect next
year.
How that ordinance takes into
account small businesses, summer interns, independent contractors and employees who fall
below a certain hours worked
threshold remains to be seen,
but its clear the regulations
would encompass the private
sector.
We want to have an honest
conversation about the reality
that both businesses and
employees are facing, council
member Dai Thao said after the
vote.
