house Bill H.R. 517

Offering Federal Employees Paid Leave For Births and Adoptions

Argument in favor

The federal government should be a model employer, and allowing four weeks of paid parental leave is the reasonable and humane thing to do.

Argument opposed

Government employees shouldn’t receive benefits that most of their private sector counterparts (who pay for the government) don’t receive.
