VIDEO: Four legislators created legislation that gives every PA worker paid family/medical leave

Senators Maria Collett (D-Montgomery), and Dan Laughlin (R-Erie), along with Representatives Wendi Thomas (R-Bucks) and Dan Miller (D-Allegheny), joined together to create the Family Care Act, which would establish a statewide Family and Medical Leave Insurance Program to provide paid leave for full- and part-time workers.

Funding for this program would come from a payroll deduction of 50 cents from every $100 earned by Pennsylvania workers, and a worker would receive 90 percent of up to $500 in a weekly paycheck and 50 percent of anything more than $500.
