It’s time for a 21st-century workplace that works for all Americans.

 

The modern family looks different than it ever has before. In 63 percent of families with children, all parents work. 32 percent of families with children are single-parent families. And yet, most moms and dads don’t have access to paid leave or flexible workplaces. On average, women are still earning 77 cents to every dollar a man doing the same work earns.

 

It’s time for workplace policies that give all workers the best chance to succeed at work and at home.

 

Join us for a conversation on working families for a 21st Century workplace at the Working Families Summit on June 23rd. Visit WorkingFamiliesSummit.org to learn more.

  1. Loved Jamila Lyiscott, but then I love spoken word; always have.

    The rest for the day, I think I might be overwhelmed.

    • Then today, the 20th, might be better, shorter….I’m doing a piece on the Parade article from whence came today’s back ground images.
