Hogan vetoes bill requiring employers to provide paid sick leave in Maryland

May 26, 2017

Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan on Thursday vetoed a bill that would have required employers to provide paid sick leave.

Mr. Hogan, a Republican, called the measure “a deeply flawed, job-killing paid leave bill,” saying “studies show it would cost thousands of jobs and billions of dollars in lost economic activity.”

He said his administration had offered a compromise that would have given employers incentives for offering paid sick leave, but that idea was nixed by the Democrat-controlled General Assembly.

“Our administration fully supports paid sick leave benefits for Marylanders, but we cannot and will not support this job-killing bill passed by the legislature, which would hurt the very workers that they are pretending to want to help,” Mr. Hogan said.

    I am glad to here your union sentiments. I am not a union employee and never have been. I feel everyone has the right to work and I want to be paid what I am worth and not a predetermined wage. I also do not get a paid sick day but I do get the ability to start and have a savings account. The education system has failed our young people today because they do not teach fiscal responsibility. If you swallow the marketing kool aid and spend all your money on things you DON’T NEED you will never have enough or be happy. Don’t spend money this day and be happy!!!
