Paid Family Leave Advocates Rally at Krepps Park for ‘Picnic for Paid Leave’

Dominion Post, Yahoo News – A group of people braved Monday’s rain and mugginess to gather at the Kreps Park Pavilion for a “Picnic for Paid Leave.” Read the full article.

It was the final picnic of several held around the state to rally support for paid family leave legislation Congress will be considering in September as part of the $3.5 trillion social infrastructure package moving hand-in-hand with the $1 trillion traditional infrastructure bill.

The picnics were put on by a coalition of groups under the name Paid Leave Works for WV.

Kelly Allen, executive director of the West Virginia Center on Budget and Policy, told picnickers that the U.S. is the only developed country that doesn’t offer parental paid leave to new moms and dads. States with paid leave have higher morale and productivity and lower turnover.
