Is the spending of $1 million to study paid leave programs in the U.S. a wise expenditure?

The U.S. Department of Labor thinks so, announcing that $1 million will be available to research and analyze how paid-leave programs can be developed and implemented across the country.

The announcement coincided with a roundtable discussion at DOL’s Washington, D.C. headquartersThe event will include leaders from Nestlé, Spotify, Patagonia and other businesses to examine the growing momentum behind paid family and medical leave across the U.S.

Up to six competitive grants will be available under this program.
