Paid Leave for All:
Paid leave will save millions of lives and jobs. There is currently 15M out of work as a result of COVID-19 and caregiving needs. As a nation, we must stand firm in our demands and simply cannot cut paid leave from the plan to Build Back Better. Raise the Floor and Fight for More! #PaidLeaveForAll
Give working families the benefits that they deserve. Caring for one’s self and family should not come with negative consequences and no one should have to choose between their family and a paycheck, their health, and their work. A national paid leave policy will provide a safety net for families while aiding in economic recovery.
A national paid leave policy is long overdue in the United States. We now have a once-in-a-generation opportunity to pass a national paid family and medical leave policy that would lift up all American workers and families. If we truly want to build back better, we can’t afford not to act. Implementing policy is the key to the long-term health, stability, and prosperity of our country.
