The United States is the only developed country in the world that does not guarantee working people have any form of paid leave. Only 17 percent of U.S. workers receive paid family leave through their jobs. Some states have established their own paid leave programs and more lawmakers of both parties are recognizing the need for a national policy.
How do we build on the current common ground and forge a path forward?
Pivotal helped the American Enterprise Institute and the Brookings Institution create the AEI-Brookings Paid Leave Working Group and we support its continued work to build consensus and fill gaps on this important issue for working families.
