A Snapshot Of This Week’s White House Summit on Working Families
Earlier this week the Center for American Progress had the privilege to co-sponsor the White House Summit on Working Families, featuring the President, Vice President, First Lady, and Dr. Biden, as well as many other leading voices for the cause to make workplaces work for everyone and ensure that women have a fair shot to help their families succeed.

BOTTOM LINE: Too many working Americans – both women and men – are living paycheck to paycheck, struggling to make ends meet and respond to the competing demands of work and family. We need policy solutions like paid family leave, equal pay, child care, and a higher minimum wage, that can make a real difference in the lives of working families and ensure America’s global competitiveness in the coming decades.
The positions of American Progress, and our policy experts, are independent, and the findings and conclusions presented are those of American Progress alone.
