Paid Family and Medical Leave: Main Street Alliance of Virginia supports the establishment of a statewide, publicly-administered, family and medical leave insurance program. A statewide insurance program will level the playing field for small “main street” businesses and make Virginia more affordable for and attractive to young professionals and working families. As business owners and executives, we support the creation of a Paid Family and Medical Leave Insurance Program in Virginia. It’s good for our businesses, our customers, our employees, and our entire economy.
