By: Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro (CT-03), Press Release
WASHINGTON, DC (August 9, 2017) — Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro (CT-03) today released the following statement regarding Facebook’s Chief Operating Officer, Sheryl Sandberg, endorsement of the Family and Medical Insurance Leave (FAMILY) Act (H.R.947) in an interview on Bloomberg TV that aired August 9, 2017.
“At some point in our lives, many of us will need to take time off from work for a serious illness, to care for a loved one, or for the birth or adoption of a child. Yet, only 14 percent of workers in the United States had access to paid family leave through their employers in 2016. Ms. Sandberg understands that this is simply unacceptable, and I am excited to have her partnership to help working families,” said DeLauro.
