Dalton proposes 4 weeks of paid maternity leave for state workers

Democratic gubernatorial candidate Walter Dalton Tuesday said he will push for paid family leave for teachers and state employees if he is elected. His proposal would allow new parents paid maternity and paternity leave for up to four weeks without losing their state jobs. Currently, the state offers no paid leave for new parents.

“So many of North Carolina's teachers and state workers are part of working families and they deserve a fair deal,” Dalton, the state's lieutenant governor said in a statement.
