Find better way to pay for family leave policy
I think the paid family leave act just adopted by the state is a great idea. It is long overdue, as well.
The method of paying for it, however, by making a deduction of $1 or so to workers’ paychecks, is not a good idea. I fear that the idea of putting things of this nature as a deduction to our paychecks will set a bad precedent. It will become the new way of doing business, until our paychecks look like a telephone bill. We must not allow this to prevail.
