I recently posted on this blog a recent study of those states that provide paid leave to workers to care for themselves or a family member. As many of you likely saw, President Obama came out yesterday in support of this type of paid leave system on a federal basis. From the AP article:
"The president is touting paid maternity in the midst of a midterm election campaign focused on women voters, without describing the details of how he would fund such a system. 'If France can figure this out, we can figure this out,' Obama said."
It is interesting that this issue is now taking on a political dimension in the struggle to attract voters during the midterm elections. This will be an interesting issue to follow . . .
