Paid Family & Medical Leave
You’ve been sick. Did you stay home? Was your job at risk? Who took care of your sick little kindergardener with fever? You? Was your job at risk?
Paid family and medical leave enables workers to earn time off to tend to a sick family member, take care of a new baby or newly adopted child or to take time to recuperate themselves. We all need a fair shake.

"These past seven months have seen migrants, refugees and immigrants take hit after hit after hit. The state of affairs with regard to our immigration policy is abysmal. Here and abroad, it has unnecessarily put communities at risk and people’s lives in danger, and it has put America’s future in question.
"Somehow we have forgotten that immigrants are people who may have needs but they also have gifts to offer. When we think of immigrants as commodities we lose sight of their humanity and run the risk of losing our own humanity."
