stdClass Object ( [created_time] => 2019-05-25T14:52:41+0000 [message] => This morning at the farmers market a woman told me how excited she was about Governor Roy Cooper’s paid parental leave program. I’m posting about it again because she reminded me this is a really big deal to a lot of people! There are fewer than 10 countries in the entire world that don’t guarantee some type of paid family leave. We don’t have this standard social support in the U.S. but the vast majority of Americans think we should. Why don’t we? This is from the article: “The governor also promoted Democratic efforts at the North Carolina General Assembly to legislate paid family leave for employees statewide. A bill filed by Rep. Graig Meyer (D-Caswell, Orange) that would require employers to fund paid family medical leave through payroll deductions is stuck in committee with no support from Republican leadership.” #NCFamiliesFirstAct #OurCarolinaPromise [id] => 565522970187681_2704667519606538 )
