Watch: Voices from the Front Lines

Voices from the Front Lines – a powerful new video from Family Values @ Work – combines a series of real-life vignettes about the struggles of working families across the country. From new moms forced back to work days after giving birth to hard-working dads stringing together part-time jobs to make a living wage, these powerful stories show why work doesn’t work for too many families and how new policies can make a difference.

For over a decade, EOI has championed working family policies like paid leave, living wages, access to retirement savings accounts, affordable health care and other critical benefits. Our Work and Family Coalition is leading the fight for Family and Medical Leave Insurance and paid sick and safe days in the state legislature.

Help spark a dialogue on how we can support our working families by sharing this video with your family, neighbors and community leaders.
