I don’t know what I would have done without paid leave

January 14, 2015

Dear President Obama,

In January of 2013 I experienced a bulging disc and could not work for two weeks while I was recovering. Not only did having paid leave allow me to take the time I needed to recover after my initial injury, but I was also able to take time away from the office during the “normal” work day to go to doctor’s appointments for physical therapy and other fitness classes so I could protect myself from a re-injury.

It has been an expensive journey so I am grateful that I have been able to keep my job throughout it all to pay for the treatment. I don’t know what I would have done without paid leave!

I hope you are able to call on Congress to make sure all people in this country can have access to paid time when they need to recover.

Sincerely,

Julie
Carrboro, NC
