Your assignment this week is to do some research on current legislation on family leave policies either local or that are being debated at the federal level (https://www.senate.gov/legislative/bills_acts_laws.htm (Links to an external site.)) . Read up on one of the bills that is being debated, the draft a letter in support of (or against if you chose) the legislation using the readings from Modules 2 and 3 as SUPPORT for your argument. Remember to argue with fact and not opinion, and be respectful.
Things to consider as you craft your response:
1.Who benefits from this legislation?
2.How will children benefit from the proposed legislation?
3.How might a personâ€™s race, class or gender impact inequalities in this policy in this country (ie, in the USA FLMA is unpaid unless a person has accrued vacation or sick time to use. This creates a disadvantage for the working poor that often donâ€™t get benefits and canâ€™t afford to take unpaid leave).
4.Are people with relatively little power (think about the intersectionality quiz) being considered?
- You need at least 2 citations and references, one from the course content this week and one for the bill you are writing in favor of (or against).
