White House Summit on Working Families
The white house Summit on working families is today!
The washington post is there right now and sent out the article letting us know that they'll be, well, letting us know what happens. The main issues they're talking about are paid leave, flexibility and better pay for working parents. While the post isn't exactly optimistic about what will get done at the summit (nobody can agree on anything...) it's still exciting that they're talking about it.
Do you think our economy/culture treats working families fairly? We fall way behind most other developed countries when it comes to things like maternity leave and child care options. Do you think that's okay because it's what makes the USA what it is today, or should we try to be more like our European neighbors?
