| Today and every other day, we’re reminded that we need to do a better job of uplifting working moms.|
The United States is the ONLY industrialized country that doesn’t mandate paid family leave. All of the hardworking mothers in our communities deserve better – whether they’re working full-time or part-time, working a temporary job or self-employed.
This is a crucial battle as we fight for gender equity in the workplace. No one should ever be forced to choose between their family and their livelihood – whether they’re a new mom or dad or caring for an ill parent.
So this Mother’s Day, we’re gathering thousands of signatures to demand action on paid family leave. Can we count on you to add your name?ADD MY NAME
State Democrats everywhere are already taking on this fight. Several states have already passed paid family leave on their own.
Just this week, Democrats in New Hampshire sent a comprehensive paid leave policy to the governor’s desk – but their Republican governor vetoed the bill.
Democrats won’t stop fighting until moms, dads, and workers in ALL states are guaranteed paid family leave.
Join Democrats from across the country to sign on and demand action >>
Happy Mother’s Day from all of us here at the DLCC!
