Q: PAID FAMILY LEAVE


 

Q:

Do you support federal legislation to require employers to offer at least 12 weeks of paid family leave to workers?

Background: The topic of paid family leave became a dominant conversation at the state Capitol for the past two years, but Democratic leaders recently abandoned their attempt to create a program. Instead, the idea’s supporters are pursuing a ballot measure in November. In the meantime, state lawmakers developed legislation to provide paid sick time to workers.
