you may not have children, but I bet you have parents. And your parents, like millions of others in the baby boom generation, are aging. In this economic crisis, even the parents who have saved for retirement are seeing that fall away -- and if they don't have enough to pay for home health care, what are you going to do? Chances are, you'll need to go help your folks out when they are sick, or be at their bedside as they near the end of their lives. You'll have to do this because it's the right thing to do, and because it will help save money on health care costs. When that time comes, Paid Family Leave will help you weather the storm.
Just think about it. This is real and it impacts everyone. We have to stop living in this fantasy world where everything goes according to plan. If we've learned anything from this economic crisis, it's that we have to have system-wide plans in place to protect everyone from disaster.
