Mayor Michael Bloomberg vetoed the paid sick leave bill Friday, but the City Council is expected to easily override it.

Nearly a month ago, the City Council overwhelmingly approved legislation that would force businesses with at least 20 employees to provide five paid sick days next year.

In 2015, it would be expanded to include businesses that employ at least 15 workers.

Bloomberg has been a longtime opponent of the bill and said it would increase costs for small businesses in his veto message.
