Beginning in 2026, Minnesota will be the 12th state in the union to offer paid family and medical leave for all Minnesotans working in the state. This means Minnesotans will be eligible for up to 20 weeks paid leave for a serious medical condition or to care for a loved one or newborn. With 75% of Minnesota’s workforce unable to access paid leave benefits, this new change is welcomed by Minnesota’s working class, but doesn’t come without tribulations. Author of the bill in the Senate, Alice Mann, joins the crew to talk about the benefits and challenges of the law.
