Working Lunch: Federal paid leave proposal dips into Social Security

Plus, why Fight for $15 pins are allowed on some restaurant uniforms

On this episode of Working Lunch, Align Public Strategies takes a look at the federal paid leave proposal that would allow workers to get paid parental leave by collecting early Social Security benefits. In an effort to offset the cost, they would then have to defer collecting benefits for a short time when they retire. 

The Align team later discusses what employers should expect from the U.S. Supreme Court nominee as well as the latest developments in the anti-plastic straw movement and why big brands are changing course. 

The podcast also features this week’s legislative scorecard and why Fight for $15 pins are allowed on some restaurant uniforms.
