Yesterday, I was honored to join President Obama and Secretary of Labor Tom Perez in  celebrating 12 “Champions of Change”  — ordinary people doing extraordinary things! Each helping more working parents and families succeed. These Champions have helped advance policies that are good for both families and businesses — such as a higher minimum wage, equal pay, paid leave, workplace flexibility, and affordable quality child care. Our “champs” are proving that these policies are not just about doing what is right for our families — they are about doing what is smart for our businesses and our economy.   You shouldn’t have to choose btwn rewarding work&raising a family. These #WorkingFamilyChamps are fighting for change pic.twitter.com/N0cNVcnMZ4 — Valerie Jarrett (@vj44) April 16, 2015 read more
