Working Lunch: The latest on the U.S. Senate race in Georgia and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s pivot on paid leave and childcare

Chism Strategies’ Joe Binns joins the podcast to share the lay of the land in the runoff election

Early and mail-in voting has started for the runoff races in Georgia and the stakes are high. Both political parties are putting all they have into the races that will control the U.S. Senate. This week on the Working Lunch podcast, the Align Public Strategies team is joined by Joe Binns, a principal at Chism Strategies in Atlanta and a longtime political operative in Georgia, who gives the lay of the land and shares his observations from the ground level.

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation made some important news this week, releasing a report linking the availability of childcare for working parents to the viability of businesses and the economy. The team discusses how not only is the nation’s leading business advocacy organization equating childcare and paid leave to business vitality and sustainability, it could also be politically stranding industries and companies that have been resistant to paid leave, either by government mandate or corporate policy.

The podcast wraps up with the weekly legislative scorecard.
