Many families find themselves struggling right now--forced to figure out how to care for themselves or a loved one facing a critical health crisis with zero weeks of paid leave in the middle of a pandemic. Paid leave is the key to our long-term health, stability, and prosperity. Paid leave saves jobs. Paid leave saves lives. We can and we must pass it now.
Working people in the United States need a national comprehensive and robust paid family and medical leave program that is more than just maternity and paternity leave and that does not threaten retirement income.
Add your name to our letter urging every member of Congress to co-sponsor and support the FAMILY Act - the paid family and medical leave insurance act that will soon be reintroduced in Congress.
Help encourage every member of Congress to co-sponsor @RepGraceMeng’s resolution on these critically important policies for children and their grown ups. Any relief and long-term recovery from the economic fallout of the COVID–19 pandemic must recognize, re- build, and return mothers to the workforce.
