Chicago flight attendant who lost husband to illness wins paid sick leave battle for aviation workers: ‘It is an incredible gift to be able to give back, despite my grief’

Chicago resident and Southwest Airlines flight attendant Corliss King, center, was determined to expand Illinois’ paid leave law to cover Illinois airline workers after her employer denied her request to use sick leave to care for her critically ill husband, Terrance Hale, who died in 2020. King is with daughters Nayla Hale, left, and Adurah Hale near the South Shore Cultural Center on Dec. 22, 2021. (E. Jason Wambsgans / Chicago Tribune)
