Even with the federal Family and Medical Leave Act, unpaid leave is still inaccessible for 60% of workers in Pennsylvania.
Impossible choices between job and family are hurting the economy, and women suffer most. Meaningful paid family and medical leave would not only improve economic conditions for Pennsylvanians, but also provide much needed support for workers and their loved ones.
Pennsylvanians need the Family And Medical Insurance Leave (FAMILY) Act, a common sense solution to address the country’s paid leave crisis. The FAMILY Act would drastically reduce the number of working families in Pennsylvania facing significant economic insecurity when they need to take family and medical leave.
Paid family leave is good for families, good for public health, good for the economy, and good for Pennsylvanians.
