The Need for Paid Leave 

Thank you for sharing your story about why it is important for all workers to have access to paid leave. Whether you need time to care for a loved one or time for yourself to heal, we all need help balancing our responsibilities at home and at work. The birth of a child, recovering from an illness, or caring for a sick family member shouldn't result in a financial crisis for you or your family. Your story can help us work to improve our policy in Maine.

We will not share your story with anyone else without your written permission. If you would prefer to talk with someone about your story - or if you have any questions - please call or email Victoria at 207-622-0851 ext. 5 or
