With growing national interest in Paid Family Leave, there are many questions about how these policies might extend to low-income women. In this webinar, Marci Ybarra of the University of Chicago School of Social Service Administration will provide an overview of current family leave policies and research. She will then discuss how other public welfare programs may function as temporary supports for poor mothers with infant children, and how expanded paid family leave programs could improve the well-being of families with children.
