SEATTLE (AP) - Thomas E. Perez, the U.S. secretary of labor, joined Mayor Ed Murray and others in Seattle to discuss paid leave policies.

Perez visited a Molly Moon’s Homemade Ice Cream shop Wednesday in the city’s Capitol Hill neighborhood. The event was part of a national push by Perez to tout the benefits of paid leave policies for workers and employers.
