Majority of Michiganders Support Paid Family and Medical Leave Proposal in What’s Next Address
Majority of Michiganders support paid family and medical leave so workers can spend time with their newborn, care for a sick parent, or get better after a serious medical procedure
LANSING, Mich. — A majority of Michiganders support the paid family and medical leave proposal in the ‘What’s Next Address,’ a speech Governor Gretchen Whitmer delivered on August 30 to lay out top legislative priorities for the fall and beyond. Paid family and medical leave ensures workers can be there for their families. It helps people bond with their babies, care for an aging parent, or get better after a serious medical procedure.
Paid Family and Medical Leave
Too many Michiganders cannot be there for their families without sacrificing a paycheck. No one should have to choose between their health, their newborn, or a sick relative and paying the bills and putting food on the table.
