Gillibrand: Absurd We’re the Only Industrialized Country that Doesn’t Have Paid Leave

‘I will sit down with any Republican who wants to talk about a paid leave plan including President Trump’

GILLIBRAND: "It makes no sense that the United States is still the only industrialized country in the world that doesn't have paid leave. I mean, it seems absurd. We're considered one of the most progressive countries in the world, but we don't actually act like it. We don't actually pass a paid leave bill that allows to compete worldwide. And our workers in America deserve better."
