The U.S. Is One Of Only 6 Countries Without Any Paid Family Leave

If Congress passes its plan for four weeks of paid family leave, the U.S. will still lag behind all but five countries. Congress is continuing to work on a sweeping new policy package spearheaded by President Joe Biden that would create laws and allocate federal funding for much-needed social benefits — things like green energy, paid family and medical leave, subsidized childcare, and elder care. There’s just one problem: The proposed new law would be expensive to implement, and to appease certain lawmakers who aren’t OK with its price tag, pieces keep getting taken out. The paid family leave portion of the bill is now down to just four weeks. It started at 12 weeks.
