Schenectady County Legislator Gary Hughes explained his support:
"Fast cars, personal jets, expensive yachts - these are luxuries. But time off to care for a newborn shouldn't be a luxury that only some families can afford. This is about the principle of the thing - we should support working people who want to meet their responsibilities both on the job and to their families."The United States is one of only four countries in the world that has no national paid family leave policy. State paid family leave legislation would help New Yorkers balance family and work.
Now it's your turn. Show your support for paid family leave!
