New polling in 15 states shows strong support for national policies that support working families. By a nearly two-to-one margin, 61 percent of voters in these states support the creation of a national paid family and medical leave fund, 69 percent support a paid sick days law and 57 percent support increasing access to high-quality affordable child care.
Last week was difficult for many of us at 9to5 and our economic and racial justice allies. The tragic police killings of two more Black men in less than 48 hours filled us with sadness, anger and fear. As a grandmother, it hurt my heart to see a four year old girl witness the murder of her mother’s boyfriend from the back seat of their car.
Our immigration system is tearing families apart. Join 9to5 and our partners across the country to call on President Obama to act now to protect children and their loved ones by stopping all deportations.
A letter of love, solidarity, and commitment from 9to5 in response to the massacre at Pulse Nightclub in Orlando.
