In their new book Time off With Baby: Making the Case for Paid Leave authors Edward Zigler, Susan Muenchow, and Christopher J. Ruhm make a compelling case for paid care leave in the US. Taking a close look at the impact of paid care leave on babies, families, and society, the authors explain the importance of paid care leave from health, education, and economic perspectives. They also analyze paid care leave in other countries and provide a proposal for a leave policy in the US. The book can be purchased here: Time Off With Baby: Making the Case for Paid Leave.
