Reader, you can help bring paid family and medical leave to Americans throughout the country!
Today, Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) and Representative Rosa DeLauro (D-CT) will introduce the Family and Medical Insurance Leave Act (“FAMILY Act”). If passed, this bill will provide workers throughout the country with up to 12 weeks of paid family and medical leave.
In a post I wrote for CELA Voice, Let’s pass the FAMILY Act: American workers deserve paid family and medical leave, I explain why paid family and medical leave matters and what you can do to help the FAMILY Act pass.
I encourage you to contact your Senators and Representative to voice your support for the FAMILY Act! By providing paid family and medical leave to all workers, we ensure that they do not have to choose between making ends meet and caring for themselves, their children, and their sick relatives.
