Whether it’s the birth of a new baby, the end of life, or dealing with a serious illness or injury, all Minnesotans should be able to take time to care for themselves or loved ones when they’re needed most. Access to Paid Family & Medical Leave ought to be available to every Minnesotan, no matter the size of our employer, how big our paycheck is, where we come from or what we look like.
Right now, Paid Family and Medical Leave is moving through both the Minnesota House and Senate. It has a real chance to be passed this year, but we need to make sure our lawmakers get it over the finish line and support Democrats who are delivering the kind of strong, statewide, state-run program Minnesotans deserve.
Nearly everyone will need paid family or medical leave at some point in their lives. What’s your story? Share it with us by contacting Haylee Hilton at firstname.lastname@example.org.
