Mainers For Working Families

A robust Paid Family and Medical Leave program in Maine would guarantee at least 12 weeks of leave for Mainers to get better if they get seriously sick, to care for an ill family member, to welcome a new child, and to take care of our military family needs.


  1. Families with access to paid leave have newborns with better health outcomes, reduced stress, and lower rates of infant death.

  2. One in six Mainers is caring for an adult family member. When we care for each other, family members recover from illness faster and have shorter hospital stays.

  3. Returning home, Veterans and their families often struggle to maintain stable income. Access to paid leave can help relieve stress and reduce risks of suicide.
