Paid Leave Policies Can Help Keep Businesses Open And Food On Workers’ Tables

Paid leave that covers time off for all workers will advance food security. Such policies will have the biggest impact when it comes to lower wage workers, as workers earning less than $50,000 were more likely to take a week off of work to care for someone with COVID, much less likely to have paid leave to cover that time, and more likely to not have enough food to feed their families.
