“Recently, one of my employees — who I’ll call Charlie — told me his mother was ill and he was setting up a mother-in-law apartment to care for her. But, after working all day as an HVAC tech, he just didn’t have the time and energy. We were as flexible and understanding as we could be. Charlie needed more, but he couldn’t take unpaid time off with two kids in college, a mortgage, and medical expenses. Both his work and his attention to his mother suffered. That’s why I’m thankful for the paid family and medical leave policy we just won in Massachusetts. Now, it’s time for our elected officials in Washington to follow and pass the FAMILY Act.”
