For this weekend's show, we want to talk with you about family leave. Several states are enacting laws to provide some kind of paid family leave.

What would that mean for you and for your budget? Do you think that should even be the government's job?

Come tell us how you'd like to see family leave work. Leave a message on our Facebook page or call us, (800) 648-5114.
