Being there for family is what matters. That’s why we need a law that guarantees you can be with your loved ones when they need you and not have to give up a paycheck while you do it.
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.
9to5 stands with Walmart workers striking for a living wage, safe working conditions, and an end to illegal retaliation. Join us at a protest near you.
