Senator Gillibrand at Hedonist Artisan Chocolates
U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand announced federal legislation that would create paid family and medical leave. The Family and Medical Insurance Leave (FAMILY) Act would establish a national paid family and medical leave insurance program, ensuring that American workers would no longer have to choose between a paycheck and caring for themselves or a family member. We are the only industrialized democracy that does not have paid family leave.
