No one should be forced to choose between keeping their job and caring for family.

In a state where more working people than ever before are caring for children and aging parents, and where families are on the front line of the opioid crisis, Paid Family and Medical Leave would provide critical coverage for West Virginians to keep their jobs and be present for the moments that matter most.

National coverage for critical paid leave policy will increase worker retention and help small businesses attract a more competitive and dedicated workforce. Passing paid leave will take the burden of coverage off of employers, strengthening small- and medium-size businesses and local communities.

Working West Virginians are caring for aging parents and caring for children. Working West Virginians are on the front line of an opioid crisis and a global pandemic. That’s why it is critical to safeguard West Virginia workers so they are able to keep their jobs and care for the ones who depend on them in times of need.

West Virginia’s population is aging, and the cost of care goes up every year. Older adults in West Virginia rely on their families for support. A paid family leave policy would mean that older adults have increased access to care and more support from their families.

For the sake of West Virginia’s workers, the people who depend on them, and the businesses that employ them, Senators Manchin and Capito must support Paid Family and Medical Leave Coverage today.

Paid Leave provides critical coverage for West Virginians to keep their jobs and be present for the moments that matter most.
