The U.S. lags significantly behind Europe and Canada on providing working parents options for paid leave, access to affordable quality child care, and quality part-time employment, according to a soon to be released report by the New America Foundation. Meanwhile, most of the industrialized world is addressing these issues while simultaneously increasing productivity rates.
Please join us for a teleconference with the report's authors, Janet Gornick and Marcia Meyers, to discuss the key findings, as well as a range of policy solutions to assist America's working parents.
