Paid Family & Medical Leave
Our communities and workplaces thrive when our families are healthy. It’s time to ensure hardworking Mainers have paid family & medical leave
The first few months of life are a critical time. Families with access to paid leave have newborns with better health outcomes, reduced stress, and lower rates of infant death.
Returning home, Veterans and their families often struggle to maintain stable income. Access to paid leave can help relieve stress and reduce risks of suicide.
One in six Mainers is caring for an adult family member. When we care for each other, family members recover from illness faster and have shorter hospital stays.
A robust Paid Family and Medical Leave program in Maine would guarantee at least 12 weeks of leave for Mainers to get better if they get seriously sick, to care for an ill family member, to welcome a new child, and to take care of our military family needs.
