The Wider Image: What lack of paid family leave means for one Texas mother
Lauren Hoffmann, 29, a college program manager, and her husband Will Hoffmann spend the day touring wineries with Will's family in Fredericksburg, Texas, U.S., February 16, 2019. Hoffmann's baby boy Micah is just a few weeks old and already she is back at work. She only had five and a half weeks of accrued paid time off from her job. "You're worried about this tiny little new life, you love it so fiercely," she said. "Having more time to feel like you're getting good at this ... I think that could only be a good thing."
