Solomon strongly believes that creating healthy work environments will benefit all people in society, and therefore policies supporting such environments should immediately be enacted. Solomon also recognizes that workplace policies that restrict parental leave most negatively affect struggling and underprivileged families, women of color, indigenous women, nonbinary people, and people with disabilities. As such, Solomon commits to supporting the following when elected to Congress:
Solomon will work to end hiring and workplace discriminations against mothers and pregnant people
Solomon will ensure that all people in this country have access to paid parental leave, regardless of sexual orientation, marital status, gender identity, or whether their children are adopted or biological
Solomon will work to create more opportunities for parents and caregivers in the workforce and economy
Solomon is committed to supporting and advancing universal child care, and will work to ensure it is enacted by Congress
When parents are provided with parental support and paid parental leave, they are given a clear pathway for upward mobility. The policies Solomon will support in Congress will level the playing field for families of all socioeconomic backgrounds.
