The City Council has struck a deal on controversial paid sick leave legislation. City Council Speaker Christine Quinn, who had long blocked the deal, reached a compromise Thursday night with supporters of a bill. Mayor Michael Bloomberg and business coalitions are opposed paid sick leave, but the plan is expected to pass with a veto-proof majority. Linda Baran, president and CEO of the Staten Island Chamber of Commerce talks about why she's opposed to the deal and Dan Cantor, executive director of the Working Families Party on why he is praising the deal.
