Newsday Weighs In On Paid Family Leave

Newsday weighed in on the Working Families Time to Care Act with an editorial in favor of paid family leave:

. . .
But the potential pluses are big, even for businesses, including a boost in worker morale and loyalty, which contribute to long-term improvements in productivity and profits. . . it's a reasonable compromise that will help families cope at critical times in their lives.
