Despite our country's insistence on putting family first, America is the only developed country in the world without government-mandated paid leave. Meaning that despite our status as one of the richest nations, a pregnancy, injury, or sudden illness of an aging parent can send us spiraling into poverty. Combining heart-rending stories with thought-provoking interviews (including Milwaukee's own Ellen Bravo!), Zero Weeks is a persuasive argument that it actually costs America more to keep doing nothing than to work toward substantive change in how we support our citizens.
