The following statement can be attributed to Denver-based A Better Balance Vice President, Jared Make:

“We applaud Senators Winter and Pettersen and Representatives Lontine and Gray for introducing the Protecting Opportunities and Workers’ Rights Act (POWR Act), which includes critical protections for caregivers. At a time when families are facing the unprecedented weight of both needing to care for loved ones and to maintain their economic security, workers should not be penalized or discriminated against at work because they are a caregiver. Colorado must protect caregivers and send the message that during this crisis and beyond, no worker should have to choose between the health of their family and their paycheck.”
