Maryland Senator Ben Cardin joins us to talk about the youth movement against gun violence, Russian sanctions, and more. D.C. Councilmember Mary Cheh shares her thoughts on relief for high water bills and news that D.C. Public Schools is taking over an all girls charter school.
Only three states — California, New Jersey and Rhode Island — provide paid leave when workers need time off to care for a new baby or a sick relative. But in a potentially history-making move, D.C. council members have proposed a new law allowing four months of guaranteed paid leave for all District employees. The proposal goes well beyond the eight weeks of paid leave currently available to D.C. government workers, and would be the most generous policy in the country. But members of the business community say the proposal comes with a price, and could even force employers out of the District. We talk with two council members about what this law would mean for Washington’s workers.
- David Grosso Member, D.C. Council (I-At Large)
- Elissa Silverman Member, D.C. Council (I-At Large)
- Harry Wingo President and CEO, DC Chamber of Commerce
