Sick leave for Starbucks Partners

On January 24, 2018, Starbucks announced a new policy related to sick leave: "A new Partner and Family Sick Time benefit will be available to all eligible U.S. partners, which will allow partners to accrue paid sick time based on hours worked and then use them if they or a family member needs care. When this benefit goes into effect this year, Sick Time will accrue at a rate of one hour for every 30 hours worked, thus a partner working 23 hours a week can expect to accrue approximately five days of sick time benefit over the course of one year." https://news.starbucks.com/press-releases/starbucks-announces-new-investments-in-paid-leave-wage

Sick leave for Starbucks Partners

I would like Starbucks to give their partners at least a week in paid sick leave. As a partners of Starbucks for almost 13 years I really would like this to happen.

Why is this important?

I have to save some of my vacation every year just in case I get sick. I am a working partner who can't afford to stay home when I am sick.
