The Campaign for a Healthy Denver said today it is “outraged” that voters most affected by a lack of paid sick days could be prevented from voting on Initiative 300, a measure to allow all Denver voters to earn sick leave.

This week, Campaign for Healthy Denver activists, dressed in infectious disease masks, turned in 12,000 petition signatures for a ballot initiative that would give paid sick days to Denver workers. The group has collected three times the nearly 4000 signatures required and the Denver City Clerk now has 25 days to certify them.
A new poll released today by Anzalone-Liszt Research finds that 65 percent of Denver likely voters support the paid sick and safe time initiative language proposed for Denver’s municipal ballot.
A municipal ballot initiative has been introduced that would require Denver employers to provide their employees with paid sick days. Denver workers would receive up to nine days of sick leave each year. Smaller businesses with ten employees or less could cap the benefit at five sick days annually.
