Paid Family Leave for Everyone Working in the U.S.





About the movement

Paid Family Leave for Everyone Working in the U.S.

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.
