The Working Families Flexibility Act, a true misnomer if ever there was one, would in reality ensure that workers have less time, less flexibility and less money.

This anti-family proposal would force workers to spend more time away from their families in exchange for possibly getting to spend time later with their families. Under this proposal, the employer, not the employee, would determine when earned comp time can be used.

National security whether it’s through defense or through economic programs that help families stay safe and secure like health care, social security, food stamps and low-income child care and housing assistance.
