Why can’t Democrats have nice things? The specific issue in question is paid family leave; especially that in Washington D.C., which has recently passed the best law perhaps in the country on the issue of paid leave. Hannah Weilbacher, a volunteer for D.C.’s Campaign for Paid Family Leave, joins radio talk show host Richard Eskow on “The Zero Hour” to discuss the new law.

Richard Eskow is host and managing editor of The Zero Hour, a weekly radio program produced by We Act Radio. He was the senior writer and editor for the Bernie Sanders presidential campaign. Richard has written for a number of print and online publications, was a founding contributor to the Huffington Post, and is a longtime activist. He is also a Senior Fellow with the Campaign for America’s Future.
