1 million people will benefit from raising the minimum wage to $15 per hour
6 Million people will benefit from Paid Family & Medical Leave
Thousands of workers earning minimum wage work three or more jobs and still can’t afford the cost of groceries, housing, heating or other basic needs. That’s wrong. No one who works full time should be paid so little that they cannot make ends meet.
The Paid Family & Medical Leave insurance program for most Massachusetts workers will provide up to 16 weeks of job-protected paid leave to care for a seriously ill or injured family member, to care for a new child, or meet family needs arising from a family member’s active military service (family leave). It will also provide up to 26 weeks of job-protected paid leave to recover from a worker’s own serious illness or injury (medical leave), or to care for a seriously ill or injured service member.
