The United States Department of Labor says that only 12% of non-government workers have access to paid family leave in the American workforce. Yet, President Trump’s budget proposal included a paid leave benefit for new parents. But, now the President’s daughter (Ivanka Trump–a self-described paid leave champion), says it may be back to the drawing board on the proposal. Ms. Trump met with “bipartisan scholars” during the week of June 5, 2017 (according to the Los Angeles Daily News on June 9, 2017) and reportedly stated the plan in the budget proposal was a “placeholder” but the administration is open to other ideas. A White House official confirmed the plan outlined in the budget was an initial effort and the administration was “open to revising it” according to the Los Angeles Daily News.
