Hanover Co-op Urges VT Lawmakers to Pass a Strong Paid Leave Bill in 2024


Our jobs and our families are important to us all. At some point, everyone will need to take time away from work to care for themselves or a loved one. But right now, 73% of Vermont workers are one family or medical emergency away from losing their pay - and for some, even their job. We believe that every worker, whether they work for the country store, on the farm, or for the hospital should have access to paid leave.

Our communities are stronger when Vermonters can count on paid family and medical leave. Call on VT lawmakers to pass a strong paid leave bill in 2024. Double down and send this email to a friend!

With paid leave, businesses can support their employees and their bottom line. Growing families have a strong start. Vermonters can live and age at home - where they want to be.


The benefits are clear - and the time for action is now. The comprehensive coverage of H. 66 will strengthen our state one family and business at a time.

Vermont has a roadmap to a cost-effective and equitable way to ensure paid leave is there for workers when they need it. We know it’s long overdue and Vermonters can’t afford to wait.

Now is the time to let legislators know you care! Please use this link to Email your Vermont lawmakers today.
