Access to Paid Sick Time in Minneapolis, Minnesota
by Jessica Milli, Ph.D. (October 2015)

Approximately 42 percent of workers in Minneapolis, Minnesota lack paid sick time, and low-income and part-time workers are even less likely to be covered. Access to paid sick time promotes safe and healthy work environments by reducing the spread of illness and workplace injuries, reduces health care costs, and supports children and families by helping parents to fulfill their caregiving responsibilities. This briefing paper presents estimates of access to paid sick time in Minneapolis by sex, race and ethnicity, occupation, part/full-time employment status, and personal earnings through analysis of government data sources, including the 2011–2013 National Health Interview Survey (NHIS) and the 2011-2013 American Community Survey (ACS).
