For weeks, Congress has been debating a bill from President Biden – $ 1.75 trillion – that would give workers significantly more rights. However, the Republican opposition wants to repeal most of the proposal. Now Megan Markle, the American wife of British Prince Harry, has personally telephoned and written a letter to Republican congressmen recognizing the right to family vacations.
For example, Markley, a mother of two young children, would have invited Senator Shelley Moore Capito from West Virginia. “I was in my car when I got the call,” Capito told Politico. “But the number was blocked, so I thought it was Senator Mancin (From the same position, ed.) Used. Then the voice said, ‘Senator Capito? This is Megan, Duchess of Sussex. “
Markle also contacted Maine Senator Susan Collins by phone and argued with her for the plan. “To my surprise she called me on my personal line and introduced herself as the ‘Duchess of Sussex’. I thought this was a contradiction,” Collins said. “I was happy to talk to her, but I’m more interested in what the people of Maine think.” Markle lives in California these days.
Markley wrote a letter to Congress last month in support of paid leave. In it, he talks in detail about the difficult circumstances in which he grew up. These actions sparked speculation in the exclusive British and American press that Markley was pursuing a career as a politician or activist.
