WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Representative Martha Roby (R-AL) appeared on national television today during a “CBS This Morning” segment on the benefits of her bill to help Americans balance the time demands of family and work. Roby sat down with CBS News Congressional correspondent Nancy Cordes to highlight the challenges facing working moms and point out the need to give employees more time options in the workplace.
“As a mom that wants to be there for the PTA meeting or for the swim meet, to have that flexibility is huge,” Roby says during the interview. “The great thing about this is it’s up to the employee to determine how to use it. Because it’s your time. You get to decide how to use your time.”
