Libs really want 30 hours of sick time for 1 hour work called Univ Basic Income. This is a great example of an organic Missouri effort to change our Constitution, you can tell by the homemade signs. NOT, another dark money effort to buy an amendment when they fail in legislature. End this BS. FJB

Paid leave is good for families and employers--it helps attract and retain the best talent, reducing employee turnover costs, and helps alleviate financial strain on families. It's a win-win.

Paid sick leave is needed for all workers. How can you pay medical bills if you aren't getting paid while you are sick or recovering from surgery?

No one should have to choose between taking care of themselves or a child and missing a pay check. This is an obvious yes.

Small Missouri employers have enough problems just meeting their payrolls. More government intrusion is not the answer.

You think prices are high now. Wait until they raise them some more if this passes.

If you don't want to be an employee, START A BUSINESS. If you can't start a business, LEAVE BOONE COUNTY. It's quite simple.

Businesses will leave not only Boone County but Missouri if this passes. Businesses will also try extra hard to automate and replace people with AI robots to keep their costs down. The problem with marxist socialists is that they ultimately run out of other people's money.

You accepted the benefits or lack there of when you accepted the job. If they offer overtime see if you can store all or part of your hours for unforeseen circumstances. If not look for a company that provides leave and quit trying to force small businesses out.

Election time and leave it to the liberals/socialists to call increasing inflation 'easing'. I'm surprised they didn't call it a decrease. Expected 6%, rose 3% and media parrots "Biden decreases inflation by 50%. All hail our glorious leader!"

We have the worst Presidential administration I have ever experienced in my 6 decades on this planet. Unacceptable. Globalism is wrong.

I agree with Steve, except it almost 8 decades for me.

My credit card balances and savings account are still adjusting, much higher and lower, respectively. All our leaders panicked with COVID and printed trillions. Joe keeps adding fuel to the fire, $1T new debt every 100 days. No wonder inflation is killing us. Joe must go. FJB
