New York City Council members have joined with advocates and unemployed parents to call on the city to help parents get back into the workforce.

Councilman Ben Kallos has introduced the "Back to Work" bill. It would require city career centers, like Workforce1, to improve their services for parents seekng to find a job after having children.

Councilman Kallos said as women's history month wraps up, it is important to help all New Yorkers better balance work and family.
