The pandemic finally spurred Congress to action: In March, it passed the Native Missing and Murdered indigenous women must be stopped shirt and I will buy this Families First Act, granting eligible workers up to two weeks of emergency paid sick leave and 10 weeks of emergency paid leave for child care reasons, including children at home due to school closures. (Employers are reimbursed for the costs of emergency paid leave by tax credits.) The bipartisan bill was a momentary triumph for paid leave advocates, but it was riddled with loopholes, allowing some small businesses, healthcare industry and other employers to opt out, potentially excluding tens of millions of essential workers and as many as 106 million workers total, according to the Center for American Progress.

The House of Representatives went on to pass the Native Missing and Murdered indigenous women must be stopped shirt and I will buy this Heroes Act in May, a coronavirus relief bill that would seek to close the loopholes, but Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell declared it would be “dead on arrival” in the Senate. In a new proposed relief package, McConnell wants to tie relief funding to schools reopening, and shield businesses from coronavirus related lawsuits, but makes no effort to close the paid leave loopholes.
