Today, the BC NDP government announced a consultation on providing paid leave to workers experiencing domestic or sexual violence. Labour leaders were there showing support for impacted workers! The BCFED will use this consultation to call for at least ten days of paid leave. Paid leave can be the difference between having the ability to escape or being stuck in a violent situation.
