This is the July 11, 2018 hearing on "Examining the Importance of Paid Family Leave for American Working Families," held before the U.S. Senate Subcommittee on Social Security, Pensions, and Family Policy of the Committee on Finance. From the opening statement of Bill Cassidy: "For nearly a decade, wages and growth have been stagnant, health care and education costs skyrocketing. American families expect more. Over the last 2 years, I have worked to help families get more money in their pocketbooks and better benefits to navigate the ebbs and flows of life. Many families in my home State of Louisiana are seeing last year's tax cut reflected in higher paychecks. I also continue to work with colleagues on lowering health-care costs for these families. To consider another thing which may help, today we will examine a paid leave benefit for working families." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Joni Ernst, Andrew G. Biggs, Vicki Shabo, and Carolyn O'Boyle.
