Progressive Idea – Paid Maternity Leave

A plan to bring paid family leave is gaining steam in the House. This is a great and progressive idea that I think will give NH a great edge in the workforce market place. It’s a voluntary insurance system so no one is forcing employees or employers pay and it does not touch the State budget. This is a step in the right direction. Families should not have to report to work before 3 months or longer if they need especially given the rise of C-Sections which require a longer recovery time. My family knows this from experience. First a bill allowing  birth control from the pharmacy and now paid family leave? The folks up in Concord are impressing me this week.
