Marty Walsh on Families & Children

 

 


Pushed for six weeks paid parental leave for city workers

Since resigning his building trades leadership position in 2013 to launch a mayoral campaign, Walsh has used his public office to advance a worker-friendly agenda. That includes signing an executive order certifying that vendors with city contracts don't engage in "wage theft," and pushing for an ordinance establishing six weeks of paid parental leave for city employees.
