Kristin Shapiro joins to discuss this month’s IWF’s policy focus: paid leave and the pandemic. As more lawmakers argue that a paid leave entitlement will help “workplaces and communities respond more effectively and equitably” to a pandemic, we discuss whether or not that’s true and also what some of the unintended consequences may be.

Independent Women’s Forum (IWF) believes all issues are women’s issues. IWF promotes policies that aren’t just well-intended, but actually enhance people’s freedoms, opportunities, and choices. IWF doesn’t just talk about problems. We identify solutions and take them straight to the playmakers and policy creators. And, as a 501(c)3, IWF educates the public about the most important topics of the day.
Check out the Independent Women’s Forum website for more information on how policies impact you, your loved ones, and your community: www.iwf.org.
