This year marks the 25th anniversary of the WI Family and Medical Leave Act signed by Governor Tommy Thompson. Big money corporate interests are lobbying Wisconsin legislators to take away the law that has protected the jobs of Wisconsin families when they’ve needed to care for their own or a family member’s illness or a new baby.
Send a message to our State Legislature! Wisconsin’s Family and Medical Leave Act protects working families from having to choose between the family they love and the job they need. Repealing the law is not an option for responsible families, in fact we need to improve it!
Family Leave Insurance enables people to maintain basic spending levels on essentials like food, utilities and repairs at a time when they need it the most – contributing to overall stability for families, communities, and a growing economy.
It’s a simple common-sense solution that is good for families, local businesses and the economy.
