Poll finds conditional support for mandatory paid sick leave

Support for a proposal to require businesses in Maryland to provide paid sick leave to employees drops precipitously when coupled with questions about possible impacts to jobs and benefits, according to a poll conducted by opponents of the effort.

The poll, a copy of which was obtained by The Daily Record, was conducted by Annapolis-based Gonzales Research & Marketing Strategies and paid for by groups that have opposed the effort, including the Mid-Atlantic Petroleum Dealers Association, the Maryland Retailers Association and the National Federation of Independent Businesses.

The numbers appear to provide a basic map of how opponents may attempt to argue the issue in the court of public opinion as the legislature takes up the issue again this year. Opponents are expected to discuss the poll and release official results during a Tuesday morning conference call with reporters.
