DENVER (CBS4)- With election day in Denver just a little more than two weeks away, more ads are hitting the airwaves. One of those is urging voters to oppose a paid sick day measure.

CBS4’s Political Specialist Shaun Boyd gave the ad a reality check. Watch her report below.

Initiative 300 would require employers in Denver with 10 or more workers to provide nine paid sick days a year. Those with fewer than 10 employees would have to provide five paid sick days.
