House Republicans Turn Back on Parents, Oppose Paid Family Leave Plans

November 4, 2021

From the Speaker's Press Office:

As House Democrats work to lower costs for working Americans and put families first, House Republicans are making clear that their agenda doesn’t include any actual support for parents – sending a full memo to their caucus opposing paid family leave policies supported by 84 percent of Americans.

While House Democrats deliver landmark support for working mothers and fathers to succeed in the workplace and lower the cost of raising a child with affordable child care, universal preschool, the Biden Child Tax Cut and paid family and medical leave, House Republicans are busy reminding everyone the GOP opposes giving working parents paid leave to take care of their children.
