Message of the Day—America Needs Paid Leave

  • America needs paid leave because one major life event that demands a worker take time off to care for a sick child or spouse can destroy a family’s economic security and throw people into homelessness and chaos.
  • Paid leave policies already are working at the state level by helping millions of families juggle the competing demands of work and family at a very modest cost, which may even be offset by savings.
  • Everyone benefits from paid leave. Mothers, fathers, children and caregivers all benefit from paid leave.
  • Paid leave helps businesses by making the benefit more affordable, decreasing staff turnover and raising morale.
