Here's one federal mandate all Americans can love: Workers need paid family leave
The benefits of paid family leave are clear, but 80 percent of U.S. workers don’t have access to it. That means after having a baby, adopting a child, falling ill, or needing to care for a sick parent or child, most people living in America can’t take time off work without risking their income or their health. In an op-ed for USA Today, RWJF Vice President for Policy Avenel Joseph says it’s time to create a policy that reflects the needs of a modern workforce. Universal paid family leave could be the needed change that benefits both the employee and employer while also creating a healthier and more equitable society.

A new study from Healthy Eating Research, funded by RWJF, finds that fully aligning school meal nutrition standards with the latest Dietary Guidelines for Americans (DGAs) would make school meals more nutritious, increase student participation in school meal programs and help children do well in the classroom. In an op-ed for The Hill, RWJF Senior Program Officer Jamie Bussel says that "regardless of what's on paper, schools need more help to put both current and future standards into practice."
