Activists and advocates were singing the praises of Oregon’s law on Monday, touting it as the most inclusive in the country for a few reasons: The bar to get paid leave benefits is low. Nearly all workers in the state will have access to the benefit, including those who work part time. You just have to earn at least $1,000 in wages a year to qualify.
Oregon doubles down by it’s promise that if you take time off from work, your job is guaranteed to be there for you when you return. Not all of the other states with these laws offer that kind of protection. Kudos and our hats off to Oregon representatives!
