Montanans need and deserve the time to support themselves and their families when they are sick.
Unfortunately, most Montana families have no access to paid leave to bond with a new baby, to take care for an aging parent, to help a family member after surgery, or to recover from their own illness or injury.
Without paid leave policies at work, Montanans must choose between taking care of loved ones and earning a paycheck. Paid leave allows people to stay in the workforce and keeps more money in the pockets of employees during leave, which helps businesses and our economy.
It is time for Montana to invest in solutions that help families balance home and work responsibilities. Paid Leave is good for moms, dads, kids, seniors, businesses, the economy, and most importantly, families.
