Eugene Paid Sick Leave Polling Trend Update


The Paid Sick Leave ordinance enjoyed an uptick after passage by the city council. Usually, successes tend to increase support just as failures decrease support. The trend with the LTD West Eugene EmX noted earlier is an example.

Worrisome for supporters is that the support/approve percentage has never reached 60 percent since the issue became widely known.

QUESTION: As you may be aware, the City of Eugene passed a paid sick leave ordinance on Monday.  [ASKED JULY 30-31]
Do you approve or disapprove of the City of Eugene requiring businesses providing services within the city limits to offer sick time to employees on an annual basis
IF APPROVE/DISAPPROVE: Is that strongly or somewhat?
IF DON’T KNOW: Which way do you lean?

METHODOLOGY: 200 live telephone interviews of likely City of Eugene 2014 General election voters conducted May 28-29, July 8-10, July 23-24, and July 30-31, 2014. The margin of error at the sample median is plus or minus seven percent. Totals may not equal 100 percent due to rounding.
