VIDEO: Step #2: Make Work Family Friendly

31
This two-part series will discuss Russia and U.S. geopolitics, while disavowing the simplistic and fake narrative of mainstream media.

No one should have to choose between providing for your family and being a good parent. Yet “family-friendly” work is still a pipedream.

Today most parents are also wage earners, whether in a two-parent or single-parent household. Politicians talk a lot about the importance of family, but must do a better job delivering.

Specifically:

– Require that women receive equal pay for equal work.

– Require employers provide predictable hours so workers can plan to be home when their family needs them.

– Provide universal childcare – pre-school and after-school – financed by employers and taxpayers.

– Require that employers offer paid family and medical leave.

The richest nation in the world should enable its workers to be good parents. Family-friendly work isn’t a luxury. People who work hard deserve to make more than a decent living. They and their families deserve a decent life.
