Rep. Jackie Walorski: The Way Forward for Child Care and Paid Leave

Rep. Jackie Walorski: The Way Forward for Child Care and Paid Leave

Congresswoman Jackie Walorski joins the podcast to discuss her new bill, The Working Families Childcare Access Act. The focus is on choice and flexibility as the main components of increasing access to child care and paid leave and provides an alternative to the one-size-fits-all approach that is often touted as the way forward. We discuss the details and why the Congresswoman thinks it’s the answer to improve our economy and benefit women and families. Congresswoman Jackie Walorski represents Indiana’s 2nd District in Congress. Serving on the House Ways and Means Committee and as the ranking member of the Subcommittee on Worker and Family Support, she is focused on helping small businesses and manufacturers grow, expanding opportunities for American workers to succeed, and empowering individuals and families to thrive. She also serves as the ranking member of the House Ethics Committee, working to hold members of the House to the highest standards of transparency, accountability, and ethical conduct.--She Thinks is a podcast for women (and men) who are sick of the spin in today’s news cycle and are seeking the truth.
