Local Advocates Hold Picnic to Push for More Paid Family Leave

WTRF – The push for paid leave was in full force Monday evening over at the Schwertfeger Shelter at Wheeling Park. Read the full article.

A statewide campaign called “Paid Leave Works for WV” was the topic and supporters held a picnic to try to garner support at the federal level for paid family and medical leave legislation.

Advocates, local leaders and even some local politicians were on hand to speak about the benefits of more paid family leave for residents in the Mountain State. One of the goals of the picnic was to send postcards to West Virginia Senators Joe Manchin and Shelley Moore Capito, who will soon be voting on some pending legislation in Congress.
