It is time for the federal government to mandate paid leave for all Americans. When compared to all other industrial nations the workers in the US work more hours, more weeks and have the least amount of sick time, vacation time and emergency leave time. It is disgraceful that the working class in the US are treated like indentured servants. The American work force deserves so much more. The rich get richer and the idea of a living wage is treated like a radical idea. The time has come for change, big change. If the Democratic party will not support life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness we will find candidates that will support the basic human rights outlined in our Constitution.
