NC voters oppose sick leave bill

Only 35% of North Carolinians support a proposal in the General Assembly to mandate employers give workers a certain amount of paid sick leave, PPP's newest survey finds.

Republicans (84%) and independents (71%) are particularly opposed to the bill, with Democrats supporting it by a narrow margin (51%).

African Americans and voters who identify themselves as liberals support the measure but beyond that every demographic group PPP tracks by gender, race, age, region, and ideology is opposed.

It appears most North Carolinians think that employee benefits should be determined by employers and employees on a case by case basis and not mandated from Raleigh.
