No Paid Sick Leave

No Paid Sick Leave

WINNIPEG - Premier Brian Pallister says he won't be following Ontario's lead by introducing paid sick leave for workers.

Health experts say paid sick leave is crucial to reducing the spread of COVID-19.

However, Pallister says it's not his responsibility, it's up to Ottawa.

Premier Doug Ford in Ontario says he's bringing in paid sick leave because people forced to quarantine shouldn't have to worry about their jobs or income.
