Gov. Chris Sununu said he supports paid family medical leave for those who work in New Hampshire, but state Democratic leaders are calling the plan he unveiled Wednesday while at a beer brewery a “PR stunt.”
Sununu joined Vermont Gov. Phil Scott, a fellow Republican, at the Schilling Beer Co. in Littleton, New Hampshire to discuss the Twin State Voluntary Leave Plan. In the event the legislatures of both states adopt the plan, enrolled public and private sector employees would be eligible for 60 percent wage replacement for six weeks at competitive rates for qualifying events. These events would include the birth of a child, or the need to care for a close relative facing a serious health problem.
