Washington, DC — In today’s CEPR Blog, Senior Policy Fellow Shawn Fremstad responds to the recent media attention on conservative attacks on liberal family values from a progressive point of view.

“[Progressives] shouldn’t feel like they need to echo social conservatives to be viewed as taking family seriously,” writes Fremstad. The bottom-line is that there are a long list of effective family policies that offer common ground for progressives, liberals, and conservatives, like paid family leave, child allowances, a higher minimum wage, promoting men’s involvement in paid and unpaid care work.
