VENTSday: Sick Leave + GMO Labeling

Jul 23, 2014


The Lane County Commissioners and Eugene City Council provide one topic for discussion this week: paid sick leave, who should provide it, and which level of government should regulate it.

And if that's not enough controversy, we'll also talk GMO food labeling on this week's edition of VENTSday.

We do not schedule guests for Wednesday at 8:30, because that's the time for VENTSday, your chance to vent (politely, please) on a pair of topics in the news. 

We bring the topics, you bring the opinions. 

It's VENTSday on The Jefferson Exchange, and you participate by calling 1-800-838-3760 or 541-552-6782 or emailing

Our topics again this week:

  • Should government mandate sick leave, and is the Eugene City Council going about it correctly?
  • Should Congress step into the GMO food labeling issue, either for or against?
