Work-Life Policies Increasingly High-Stakes Economics
Updated On: Sep 19, 2022
Sept. 19, 2022 | ECONOMICS | Work-life policies like paid sick and medical leave, as well as reasonable hours and scheduling, are becoming a more high-stakes economic issue as in-person workers exercise their increased leverage in a tight labor market — and cope with more than two years of working on the front lines of a pandemic. A fight over paid sick leave and working conditions almost brought the country's economy to a standstill last week. Railway workers, who say they don't have easy access to paid sick time, were ready to strike if their employers wouldn't improve working conditions. Workers in many fields are more willing to strike, demanding better pay and — crucially — improved conditions, the Wall Street Journal reports, noting that it reflects how the pandemic has reshaped jobs and attitudes about work.
