Paid Family and Medical Leave – the Disability Angle

Recently, The Arc and the Georgetown Center on Poverty and Inequality released a first of its kind paper, outlining why paid family and medical leave (PFML) is a necessity for the economic security and stability of people with disabilities and their families. The need for PFML is universal, and well documented. What’s been missing is the disability angle, and it’s huge – nearly 1 in 5 Americans and their families.
Meet Lauren, Steve, and Stephanie in a video featuring their family’s paid leave story, and read more stories profiling several workers whose paid leave stories highlight the disability perspective.
