It’s a long way from becoming law, but we’re glad to be able to report that the Pennsylvania Senate is at least considering the needs of small business as relates unnecessarily increasing labor costs.  We noted this week that the senate on a vote of 37 – 12 passed a bill that would overturn a new law in Philadelphia that mandates paid sick leave for all employees within the City of Brotherly Love, and moving forward, would prohibit any Pennsylvania municipality from requiring employers to provide any paid leave in excess of existing state or federal requirements.
