Urge Congress to Put Families First

take action

NCJW worked hard for passage of the landmark Family and Medical Leave Act in 1993, but 24 years later, workers are still forced to choose between caring for themselves and their families and protecting their economic security. The Family and Medical Insurance Leave (FAMILY) Act (S 337/HR 947), introduced in February 2017 by Rep. Rosa DeLauro (D-CT) and Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY), would give millions of workers access to 12 weeks of paid leave to take care of their parents, children, spouses, or themselves. The FAMILY Act would cover all workers at all companies, ensuring that those who need it the most — low wage earners and single parents, who are disproportionately women and people of color — would have access to paid family and medical leave.
