No, private businesses should decide the amount of competitive incentives they offer to employees instead of a government mandate

Businesses should only grant paid maternity leave for two kids and sick leave.

@4YCZ8L4from California  answered…2yrs

The lack of paid leave in general is a system that only begets inefficiency cycle after cycle. In some countries, men and women will have up to a year or two of government or privately sponsored sick, and more importantly paternity/maternity leave. This is because other countries know that to properly raise a child, one must really be around all the time in the early years, if possible. I believe the lack of time spent in raising a child can be reflected in the sad state of affairs in this country. People grow up less ready for this world, and ultimately less connected to it because they didn't have their father around a lot as a kid, who was constantly working late to give me and my sister a better life. And in that regard, I advocate family leave in general.

Yes, but only for a limited time, and only for companies with more that 100 employees.

No, private companies should not be forced to provide pain leave, but morally, companies should provide such to their employees.

@9647L76 from California answered…4 days

Yes, but I think the government should supplement it so the business alone doesn’t not shoulder everything.

@963SS9T from Ohio answered…5 days

The federal/state government should be responsible for supplementing wages for sick leave/the birth of a child.

@963M7YL from California answered…5 days

Yes, as long as it cannot be abused and it ensures the continued health of all participants

@95Z33GL from Indiana answered…1wk

Yes for a birth of a child, but it depends for the sick family and what they are sick for.

@95YL7DF from North Carolina answered…1wk

Yes, always for maternity leave and major sicknesses not just a regular cold

Yes, but the employee should earn/ accumulate their paid sick time based on how many hours or time they have spent with the employeer.

@95WRGCH from Arkansas answered…1wk

Yes, half their hourly rate minimum and allow companies to increase the amount paid

@95VK2YB from Indiana answered…2wks

Yes, But both businesses and government should share in this. Businesses should pay proportionally to their profit and the government can subsidize the rest.

Yes, but small businesses should get help from government subsidies if under a certain number of employees and if necessary.

@95SKX9B from Oregon answered…2wks

@95SLGBK from Missouri answered…2wks

@95RM6J6 from Washington answered…2wks

Yes, the lack of paid sick leave is unfair to working men and women. Additionally, the federal government should mandate this requirement.

@95RFF49 from Minnesota answered…2wks

Yes, but funding depends on company size. Large companies fund it themselves, small companies get government funding.

@95PK6MC from California answered…2wks

Businesses should not only be required to give employees paid leave on sick days but should be required to give at LEAST a 1 month PAID vacation every year. & make those sick days unlimited or offer a temporary remote/work from home position.

@95CHRH3Libertarian from Tennessee answered…3wks

Yes, to the maternity leave because the woman still needs time to heal after having a baby. However, with a sick family member businesses should be required to only if the employee provides verifiable proof of the sick family member.
