Sociology faculty members write about paid parental leave

Two faculty members teamed up to write about paid parental leave in an op-ed for The Plain Dealer.

Karie Feldman, a lecturer in the Department of Sociology, and Brian K. Gran, associate professor of sociology, wrote the article, titled “With paid parental leave on both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump’s agendas, it’s time to adopt it.”

In it, they explained what they believe are the benefits for both parents to have the opportunity to take paid time off work to care for their newborn child.
