Problem:

Only 10 states plus Washington D.C. have laws requiring private sector employers provide paid leave for school related activities for dependents.

We believe that this is a policy worth considering at the municipal and state levels

 

Solution:

 California  40 hrs per year
 Colorado  18 hrs per year
 D.C.  24 hrs per year
 Illinois  8 hrs per year
Louisiana 16 hrs per year
 Massachusetts  24 hrs per year
 Minnesota  16 hrs per year
 Nevada  N/A
 North Carolina  4 hrs per year
 Rhode Island  10hrs per year
 Vermont  24 hrs per year

Total: 184 hrs / by 11 States = 16hrs per year for Texas
