  • U.S. Secretary Of Labor Discusses Changing Role Of Fathers At Home, Work

    During the past half century the roles of men and women in the office and at home have shifted dramatically. More women are in the workplace, more men are staying home, and many families have two working parents. Today, men are expressing an increasing desire to spend more time with their families and finding that society’s expectations often do not align with that desire. About a third of American women have access to paid parental leave, while only a fifth of men have access. The United States is also the only high-income nation in the world to not provide universal paid parental leave. Leading up to this Father’s Day, United States Secretary of Labor Thomas Perez weighs in on how the country can improve working conditions for parents.
