San Francisco Adopts Full Paid Family Leave
Take a break; you’ve earned it. San Francisco’s Board of Supervisors voted unanimously to require businesses to pay an employee’s full salary for six weeks after the birth of a child, the first major U.S. city to do so. California already requires partial payment, usually up to 55 percent. Critics say such measures will hurt small businesses in an already volatile economy — but workers’ rights advocates call this a huge win, and both Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders have been talking up parental leave policies on the campaign trail.
