Statement for the Record—U.S. Senate Committee on Finance Hearing: “Exploring Paid Leave: Policy, Practice, and Workforce”
On November 8, CLASP submitted this statement for the record after the Senate Finance Committee full committee hearing on October 25, 2022.
The U.S. remains the only Organization for Economic Development (OECD) member country without a paid parental leave program. While 14 states have stepped in to provide paid leave to working people, it’s critical Congress create a federal paid leave program to provide all workers with paid leave to care for a new child, a seriously ill loved one, or their own serious health condition.
