At her San Francisco event, Clinton calls out Scott Wiener’s legislation expanding paid family leave
San Francisco, CA – (November 13, 2016) Today, Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton praised Supervisor Scott Wiener for his work to expand paid family leave in San Francisco. In her remarks to the crowd at Bill Graham auditorium, Clinton stated:
"I'm going to close my campaign the way I started my career: fighting for kids and families. Talking on the kitchen table issues that keep families up at night. Here in San Francisco, you're already leading the way on so many issues. And I want to give a special shout out to Supervisor Scott Wiener and everyone who worked so hard to pass paid family leave. Don't you think it's time we brought the rest of America up to speed?
“It’s a huge honor that Secretary Clinton recognized my efforts to help working families,” stated Scott Wiener. “As a long-time Hillary Clinton supporter, I couldn’t be more proud to stand by her side on these issues that help make our communities more affordable for everyone. I look forward to fighting for fully paid family leave in the state senate.”
Scott authored first-in-the-country legislation to require fully paid family leave for new parents after childbirth or adoption, applying to both parents. Scott's legislation will make it much easier for new parents to bond with their children. Scott will work in the State Senate to expand access to paid family leave for all Californians.
