9to5 applauds today’s introduction of The Family And Medical Insurance Leave Act (FAMILY Act), a federal bill to establish a national insurance program to provide wage replacement for workers when serious health and family caregiving needs arise.
Across the country, the momentum is building as more cities and states win work/family policies that help working women care for themselves and their families without losing a paycheck or risking their jobs.

The Senate is expected to vote on the Fair Minimum Wage Act in the next few weeks. Call your Senators and tell them to vote YES to raising and indexing the minimum wage and tipped minimum wage. America can’t afford poverty wages any longer.
