Extend the Family Medical Leave Act

The Family Medical Leave Act is crucial for working families in times of need, but the time has come to expand the law to cover more families.

Only one in five of all new mothers are able to utilize the law’s benefits. Lesbian and gay partners and spouses are not covered. More than three-quarters of the eligible workers who need leave are unable to use it because they cannot afford to go without their wages.

No American should have to choose between the job they need and the family they love. Pro-family health care policies strengthen our economy and are in everyone’s best interest. Our nation’s productivity and competitiveness benefit when workers are able to meet their demands at home and on the job.
