More Than 100 Aging and Work Experts Call on Congress to Address the Nation’s Caregiving Crisis With a Strong Paid Leave Plan

WASHINGTON, D.C. – For National Family Caregivers Month, 113 of the nation’s leading researchers on aging, work and family issues sent a first-of-its-kind letter to Congress today urging lawmakers to address rapidly growing demand for care by establishing a national paid family and medical leave policy. Specifically, the experts call for speedy passage of a comprehensive, inclusive national policy like the Family And Medical Insurance Leave (FAMILY) Act – legislation that would create a national paid family and medical leave insurance program. They warn that the financial and emotional strains on family caregivers and older adults who need care will get appreciably worse unless Congress prioritizes workplace supports like paid leave.
