Philadelphia Chamber Of Commerce
In the middle of pressing soda and property tax issues, City Council dealt with two controversial bills dealing with sick leave and the DROP program.
The debate continues in City Council over whether to force local firms to give workers earned sick leave. The proposal was amended Thursday, but not enough to satisfy critics.
Advocates for the bill say it would cut health care costs. Opponents call it burdensome.
Despite the economic challenges of the past two and a half years, Mayor Nutter told the business community that investment is flowing again, and they’re working everyday to create jobs.
