Oregon just became the eighth state in the country to pass a paid family leave bill, giving 12 weeks of paid time off to new parents, victims of domestic violence and people who need to care for an ill family member or themselves. The state Senate passed the law Sunday night, 21-6, with four Republican senators joining the Democratic majority. ...
