New Jersey working families called on President Obama to use the bully pulpit to push forward earned sick days and paid family leave policies in his State of the Union address. Today, his administration announced proposals to strengthen the middle class by giving working families the flexibility to balance their families and jobs. Letters, from New Jersey working families, parents, and business owners, were sent to the President as part of a package from 21 state coalitions fighting for these policies that make up Family Values @ Work.
