A coalition of the usual suspects on the left held a press conference at the legislature in favor of requiring private businesses in North Carolina to provide paid sick days for their employees. So, which groups think we need to have more unfunded government mandates shoved down the throats of job creators?

When business owners have to make staffing decisions, they certainly don't need a somebody like the local branch of the National Abortion & Reproductive Rights Action League to impose new regulations on them. It is good to see the NCAE standing up for teachers, except that teachers already have paid sick days.
