AEI-Brookings Joint Report: Paid Family and Medical Leave: An Issue Whose Time Has Come

Aparna Mathur, Isabel Sawhill, Abby McCloskey, and others, AEI-Brookings Joint Report, June 6, 2017

"The report suggests a compromise plan for policymakers to consider. The compromise plan would provide eight weeks of gender-neutral paid parental leave, replace 70 percent of wages, and offer job protection. The policy would be fully funded by a combination of payroll taxes and savings elsewhere in the budget, with no increase in the deficit but also no adverse effects on low-income families."
