|85% of working parents aren’t guaranteedpaid parental leave.So we’re calling on 20,000 Progressives to sign on and demand Congress give every family the opportunity to spend time with their newborn babies. |
Dick, sign on now to join us: TELL CONGRESS: PASS UNIVERSAL PAID FAMILY LEAVE →Dick, paid family leave is critical to the health and wellbeing of parents and their newborns.
And while the majority of people have access to some form of unpaid family leave, only about 15% of working families receive paid leave.
Meaning: family leave is a privilege only for those who can afford it. As Progressives, we know children and parents deserve better.
That’s why we’re taking action and urging Congress to strengthen family leave laws.If you believe that every parent should have the paid opportunity to spend the first few months with their baby, sign on now:TELL CONGRESS: PASS UNIVERSAL PAID FAMILY LEAVE →The United States is one of the richest countries in the world. So it’s an absolute disgrace that our laws prevent most new parents from spending time with their newborn babies.
Currently, federal law only requires 12 weeks of unpaid parental leave. And this law only applies to companies with over 50 people.
We know that with the help of grassroots Progressives like you, Dick, we can make real change that will help improve the lives of working families everywhere.So we’re counting on you. Will you sign on to tell Congress to pass paid family leave?TELL CONGRESS: PASS UNIVERSAL PAID FAMILY LEAVE →https://go.weareprogressives.org/Family-Leave-Laws
