Senator David Carlucci Calls for Paid Family Leave

Senator David Carlucci hosted a press conference on Friday, March 27th at the “Just for Kids Daycare” center calling for the legislature and Governor Cuomo to include paid family leave in the 2015 New York State budget.

In New York State, only twelve percent of all workers are provided with Family Leave Insurance (FLI) from their employers. Additionally, over 40% of employees nationwide qualify for unpaid leave through the national Family and Medical Leave Act. This leaves many families with an impossible choice between being able to take care of their newborn, or be able to earn the income they need to make ends meet.
