Transcripts of full meetings of the council.

I speak on behalf of the disabled veterans. I speak on behalf of the women, even the men. Forty-three percent of men are working today without sick pay. They deserve it.

Sick pay reduces turnover. It increases the productivity, and it reduces the spread of contamination. Fifty-three percent of working mothers and 40 percent of working fathers don't have paid sick day to care for their children. That is a catastrophe in itself.

I thank you for allowing me to be here. Two years ago I spoke, and after I finished, I almost passed out. Who is going to here revive me if I was to pass out here today?

I thank you for allowing me to be here. Have a great day. May God bless you all.
