POLITICS 02/11/2019 02:04 pm ET The Family Act, introduced by Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand and Rep. Rosa DeLauro, will probably pass in the House. It faces a rocky path in the Senate, though. By Emily Peck The U.S. is inching closer to a paid family leave policy this year, catching up to essentially every other country in the world. On Tuesday, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) and Rep. Rosa DeLauro (D-Conn.) plan to reintroduce the Family and Medical Insurance Leave Act, a bill that would guarantee 12 weeks of partially paid leave for new parents and for workers who need to care for sick family members or are experiencing serious health issues. “There is very serious momentum,” DeLauro told HuffPost, explaining why this year is different. “We’ve got a new Congress, we’ve got the largest majority of women and young people.” Finally, family leave is at the “center of the debate, rather than the fringes,” she added. … [Read more...] about Democrats Have A Real Shot Of Getting Somewhere On Paid Family Leave
POLITICS 01/22/2019 03:46 pm ET Americans say, 50 percent to 35 percent, that Trump should have compromised on the border wall. By Ariel Edwards-Levy A 53 percent majority of the American public now calls the partial government shutdown “very serious,” a new HuffPost/YouGov survey finds, with 77 percent believing it’s at least somewhat serious. The poll was conducted over Martin Luther King Jr. Day weekend, as politicians continued to debate the terms of a possible deal and as furloughed workers braced to miss a second paycheck. Just over one-quarter of Americans say that they’ve been personally affected by the shutdown or that they expect to be affected in the future. What they mean by that varies dramatically in scope and impact. For some, it’s meant simply long lines at the airport or increased concerns about food safety; others have been plunged into acute financial distress by the shutdown, or are trying to help their … [Read more...] about Here Are Some Of The Ways The Shutdown Is Affecting People Across The Country
POLITICS 01/10/2019 03:06 pm ET Updated 1 hour ago Democrat Gavin Newsom’s proposal counts as groundbreaking and radical for the U.S.; it still falls short of what most developed nations offer. By Emily Peck Newly elected California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) on Thursday proposed what would be the most generous paid parental leave policy in the nation: six months of partially paid leave so parents or other family members can care for a newborn or newly adopted baby. Right now, some California parents have access to a combined four months of leave at partial pay. Those who get less include adoptive parents, same-sex couples and single parents. Two-thirds of countries in the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development guarantee six months of paid time off to new mothers. Newsom’s plan doesn’t go that far. Instead, the proposal, unveiled as part of his 2019 budget, would allow two caretakers to split six months off, according to a fact … [Read more...] about California’s Governor Just Proposed The Longest Paid Parental Leave In The U.S.
