Storyline

What do the United States and Papua New Guinea have in common? They're the only countries in the world without paid family leave. Most Americans agree that family comes first but in the richest country in the world, having a baby, a medical emergency or an aging parent can be a trigger into poverty. No matter where you work or what zip code you live in, you should be able to welcome a new child, care for an aging parent or tend to a cancer diagnosis without facing financial disaster. But because 78% of Americans say they live paycheck-to-paycheck, families are often forced to choose between taking time off to care for a loved one or to continue work to keep their job and health care. Nearly 1 in 4 mothers return to work within ten days of having a baby and 2/3 of the current workforce are providing care for an aging parent. Weaving powerful stories together with insightful interviews with leading policymakers, economists, researchers, and activists, ZERO WEEKS explores America's paid ... Written by Ky Dickens

Never thought paid leave would be interesting - the movie is fabulous
19 August 2019 | by hannah-76794See all my reviews

Never in a million years would I think a film about paid leave would be compelling enough to keep my attention for a full 90 minutes. This film is really thorough in laying out a case that will outrage you (if you're an American) and inspire you to make change. I always thought this was a topic that mattered mostly to moms and parents but I'm wrong. This is about seniors and single people - almost more. It's a must see.
