Description

Should paid parental leave be mandatory in the United States? Horace Cooper with the National Center for Public Policy Research and Elizabeth Peters with the Urban Institute discuss this issue on Al Jazeera America's "Inside Story with Ray Suarez" on June 30, 2015. "I've got no problem if an employer decides that a great way to retain employees for long term is to take [paid parental leave] on," says Cooper. "I have a problem with, if that turns out not to be cost-effective for an employer, telling them, 'You're gonna do it anyway.'" This short excerpt from Al Jazeera America's "Inside Story with Ray Suarez,” broadcast on 6/30/15 and featuring National Center adjunct fellow Horace Cooper, has been posted under fair use guidelines for the purpose of non-profit, educational public debate by the National Center for Public Policy Research, a 501(c)(3) educational foundation under the Internal Revenue Code.
