The poll was conducted in May and included nearly 200 respodnents.

Democrats in the Senate and House of Representatives have introduced two pieces of legislation that would require that employers provide paid sick leave to employees.

Under the legislation, employers would be required to allow employees to earn at least 1 hour of paid sick time for every 30 hours worked. The legislation would allow employers to cap the amount of paid sick leave an employee can accrue at 56 hours per year.

U.S. Representative Rosa DeLauro (D-CT) introduced the legislation (H.R.2460) in the House, and Senator Ted Kennedy of Massachusetts introduced legislation (S.1152) in the Senate.

Three jurisdictions already require paid sick leave: the District of Columbia, San Francisco, and Milwaukee . In San Francisco, an ordinance requires employers to give 1 hour of paid sick leave to an employee for every 30 hours worked. In November 2008, voters in Milwaukee approved a referendum to require employers to offer paid sick leave to their employees.
