It is very baffling that anyone would oppose paid family and medical leave! Everyone has a family member who gets sick at some time.
Senator Tarr decided to use a parliamentary procedure to block a vote in the Massachusetts Senate this past Saturday, on a bill that allows workers to recover from a serious illness or injury, to care for a seriously ill or injured family member, or to take care for a new child.
Please take a moment to reach out to your Senator and ask them to stand up against this delay, and pass Paid Family and Medical Leave now, without any delaying amendments. Assume that all senators need a reminder. Please reach out to your Senator so we can get the bill passed in the Senate this coming Saturday, when the session resumes after the Democratic convention.
