CALIFORNIA — The California Democratic Party said on Monday it was stepping up efforts to help California moms leave the workforce after their newborns were born.
“While we have not had any recent labor and delivery complications, we have seen a rise in labor and birth complications from mothers who have been working part time or even full time while expecting a child,” the party said in a statement.
“Our statewide efforts are in addition to a national effort, which we hope will soon be launched to assist California women who want to return to the workforce.”
The statement came days after the California Democratic Executive Committee said it was also looking into the issue.
The California Democratic party said it has launched an initiative aimed at helping California women leave the labor force.
A spokesperson for the state Democratic party declined to provide any details on what efforts the party is working on. “
The California Democrat Party is also working to raise the minimum wage and expand access to paid sick leave.”

Earlier this month, the California Labor Department said it would provide maternity leave to some employers, but not others.
The Labor Department is in the midst of a process to set up a national program to help help workers leave the job market.
California is the first state to provide a paid maternity leave program.
A new report found that women with new babies are paid less than men in similar positions.
In January, the Department of Labor said it had found that companies were paying about 10 percent less than the national average for mothers to take paid time off, which is considered time off after having a baby.
Employers can set up paid time-off programs at their own discretion.
