Takedown: Demolishing arguments against family leave

New Jersey Star columnist Thurman Hart takes good aim at specious arguments used by some opponents of family leave in his state, and he challenges those who disagree with him to back up their own points with facts instead of ideological opinions.

With family leave insurance now the law in Washington, all families can look forward to the benefits scheduled to begin in October 2009. But with key administrative and budgetary decisions about the program still to be made, it will be interesting to see whether opponents of family leave will try to recycle their arguments this time around.
