Microsoft Takes The Step and #LeadsOnLeave

President Obama, his Advisor, Valerie Jarrett, and Secretary of Labor Thomas Perez have been traveling the last few days around the country to places like Chicago and North Carolina pushing their project for citizens to bring more labor rights to working families in the labor force, Lead On Leave.

One of the first large corporations to make a change for their employees, other than Patagonia, was Microsoft. According to the Huffington Post, “Microsoft will be taking steps to require all of its large U.S. contractors to offer their workers at least 15 days of paid leave per year.”

Although it was a large step for Obama’s administration, unfortunately, with Microsoft now having lost popularity with Apple, it makes people question, “Who cares?” Once a popular, trending big-name company comes, though, that may be the start of a huge movement for #LeadOnLeave.
