Is there a difference? Amendment vs. Proposition

DENVER -- Fewer than half of Coloradans have access to paid family leave, and the majority only for maternity or paternity leave. Colorado lawmakers will look at creating a mandated family leave program this session, supported in part by a new study from the University of Denver that looks at the costs and benefits to workers and employers.

On this weekend's Politics Unplugged, Nicole Brady talks to study author Jennifer Greenfield to learn about how similar programs have been used elsewhere.

Politics Unplugged airs Sundays at 4:30 a.m. and 4 p.m. on Denver7 and noon on K3-KCDO.
