President Obama wants the government to do more to help working families. Speaking at a White House Summit on Working Families today, the President said people should not have to sacrifice family needs for work demands. He said too many families have to regularly ask, “How do we make this whole thing work?” Obama called for more paid family leave and flexible schedules in the workplace. He also said there should be more access to quality, affordable child care. Obama called them basic needs, not frills.

The President argued against the notion that family-related issues are “women’s issues.” He said they are America’s issues. Meantime, Obama again pushed Congress to raise the national minimum wage. He said no fulltime workers should have to live in poverty.  (Metro Networks Inc.)
