Smart Talk Thursday: Paid sick and family leave?; Coin shortage
Wolf proposing paid time off; businesses balk
Gov. Tom Wolf wants all Pennsylvania employers to offer paid sick and family leave time to their employees. Under the governor’s proposal, paid sick leave can be used to recover from an illness, for medical appointments, to care for a family member, or to seek help from abuse or violence. Six weeks of family leave would also be available with the birth of a new child.
Gene Barr, President of the Pennsylvania Chamber of Business and Industry joins us on the program, as well.
Also, you may have heard there’s a coin shortage during the COVID-19 pandemic. Actually, there is a not a shortage of coin, but a circulation problem caused by several factors, including bank lobbies not being open.
We’ll learn more about the coin circulation issue on Thursday’s Smart Talk and what you can do to help get more coins into the marketplace.
Our guest is Hannah Walker, Vice President of Political Affairs with FMI: The Food Industry Association and a member of the Federal Reserve U.S. Coin Task Force.
