Katie Bethell, founder of the PL+US (Paid Leave For the United States), talks about their national campaign to win paid family leave by 2022. PL+US has already had several successes within the private sector and has already won paid family leave for nearly 6 million Americans.
We talk about the necessity of paid leave beyond mothers and babies; paid leave is a human right and if implemented correctly, a good national paid leave policy will include those who need to take care of aging parents, time off to care for love ones who may be sick, and adoptive parents, just to name a few scenarios.
