Terri Gerstein Writes on American Airlines Case Against Sick Days

Former Fellow Terri Gerstein (‘05) wrote an article for The American Prospect on the recent lawsuit filed by American Airlines fighting paid sick leave laws in New York City and the repercussions for airline passengers and employees (“American Airlines Sues to Make Travelers Sicker,” Aug. 12). “Airlines are not mom-and-pops. They’re massive international businesses with such complex operations that they sometimes literally charge a different price for every seat on every plane,” Terri wrote. “It seems well within their capacity to track five or six sick days per employee.”
