Families come first — that’s how it should be.
But in reality, 1 in 4 moms return to work within just 10 days of giving birth. Only 15% of us have access to paid family and medical leave through our employers — and often it’s not enough to meet the needs of families.
You shouldn’t have to be rich to have a family in this country or to be there for your loved ones when they need you most.
That’s why Jacky Rosen is fighting for paid family and medical leave for all. She’s been named a Paid Family Leave Champion by PL+US Action.
