Paid Family and Medical Leave

Welcoming a new child, fighting cancer, caring for an aging parent – a handful of times in life, we all need to take significant time off work to care for our families or ourselves. But most workers have only limited paid leave to deal with their family health needs, and many have no leave at all. A Paid Family and Medical Leave Program is a simple solution, providing income when it really counts – so a blessed event or health crisis doesn’t turn into a family economic crisis.
