Patagonia supports employees with paid leave to care for themselves or an immediate family member. We do it because it’s the right thing to do for employees and their families–and because it’s good for our business. But this kind of support is far too uncommon in the United States, where just 13 percent of workers have access to paid family and medical leave. We’re the only industrialized country without a law that gives workers paid leave when serious family or medical needs arise.
This video makes the case for doing what’s right for families—and for businesses’ bottom lines. Passing the FAMILY Act would provide workers with up to 12 weeks of partial income when they take time for their own serious health condition, including pregnancy and childbirth recovery; the serious health condition of a child, parent, spouse or domestic partner; the birth or adoption of a child; and/or for particular military caregiving and leave purposes. Call on your representatives in Congress to co-sponsor the FAMILY Act today—support paid leave and learn more here: http://pat.ag/Family
