From MOMS RISING:

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!
