Alert 2/14/2020 Demand Paid Family Leave

Find our progressive activism ALERT OF THE DAY weekdays on Verdant Square Network


Can you believe that in the United States only 19 percent of workers–and only 5 percent of low-wage workers–have access to paid leave?

Working families need a national paid family and medical leave policy that checks ALL the boxes: It needs to be ACCESSIBLE to all workers, offer a MEANINGFUL length of leave, be AFFORDABLE for workers, employers and the government, INCLUSIVE in defining family, and offer job PROTECTION.

It is time to make paid leave a reality for everyone. Whether it’s to care for a newborn you swear already smiles, a mom who is ill, or a spouse battling cancer, being there for family is what matters. You shouldn’t have to give up a paycheck to do it.

Tell Congress that we want a comprehensive paid leave bill that benefits ALL workers!

Get busy!
