About the movement

Paid Family and Medical Leave helps people to take time away from work for the arrival of a new child, to help a family member with a serious illness, or for their own serious illness.

Only 13% of private sector workers in the U.S. have any paid family leave - we're the only developed country with no national policy. There are only 2 countries in the world without any national maternity leave policy: The United States of America and Papua New Guinea. 

Paid Family Leave makes it possible for families to help each other. It’s also great public policy. PL+US is fighting to win paid family leave for everyone working in the U.S.

Organized by PL+US Paid Leave for the United States
