"Paid Family Leave is just as much a societal issue as it is a workplace issue," said New York State AFL-CIO President, Mario Cilento. "No one should have to choose between providing emotional support for a family member and a paycheck. The New York State AFL-CIO remains committed to ensuring workers can put family first. We applaud Speaker Heastie and Assemblywoman Nolan for their leadership and the Assembly Majority for their ongoing support on this critical issue."
