STATEMENT: HEROES Act Would Give America’s Working Families the Paid Leave and Other Essential Supports We All Need in This Pandemic
“The HEROES (Health and Economic Recovery Omnibus Emergency Solutions) Act is vitally important legislation that would provide the help the country needs right now when it comes to access to paid leave/sick days, health care, nutrition assistance, and aid to state and local governments. We urge Congress to pass it immediately, as we also recognize that more must be done to fully address the needs of families, businesses, and our economy."
