Millions of U.S. workers, including #Latino workers persistently face the stress of having to choose a day's wage over taking their son, daughter, parent, or themselves to the doctor's office because they don't have #paidleave. NHCOA is working to ensure #paidfamilyleave and #medicalleave are priorities at the local and national level. You can help us by sharing your story and adding your voice to the growing current of advocates asking Congress and elected officials to #leadonleave. http://bit.ly/1GjuuQW
