Despite negotiations that led to changes in the Paid Sick Leave legislation, City Council Speaker Christine Quinn said she still opposes it, putting her on the side of the Bloomberg administration and business leaders against most of the City Council.
She made her latest comments on the bill to the Queens Chronicle, in response to a local rally in favor of the proposal.
The bill "will cost us jobs and cost us small businesses and their future in these tough economic times" she said in a statement to the paper, which noted she ws "using the same words spoken in January."
