Is actually smart that in America we don't give women paid time off to sit on their rears and take care of infants?

Like in Sweden women get paid time off to care for their babies but the single dads do not. It so unjust that people in other countries have to pay taxes for newly mom's to sit on their rears with a baby for like 6 months so unfair. My hard-working blue collar teach came back less than a month after giving...

Parents in Sweden get 480 days of parental leave. This can be used by parents of either gender. 60 of those days are reserved exclusively for fathers, and the government is talking about increasing that you 5 months for dads.

Swedes pay more taxes and have far less disposable income than Americans. Their welfare state is causing huge economic problems and they are thinking of cutting many social services (but of course will still have high tax rates). Sweden has the highest rape rate of any western country. Sweden’s choices are certainly not ones the U.S. should emulate. People should get paid to work, not to take extensive leaves from work.

Feminists say they want gender equality. Well, there’s nothing equal about giving women more paid time off, regardless of the reason.

Start requiring companies to pay for lengthy maternity leave, and companies will avoid hiring young women.

Plenty of companies DO do that.

If you don't like where you work, work someplace else. Unemployment is VERY low, so companies will be willing to negotiate.

The government is NOT there to pay people to take care of their kids....unless you are legitimately very poor, and in need of TEMPORARY assistance until your situation can be improved, you should take care of yourself and your family.

Someone has clearly never heard about the companies that do now in fact offer paid paternity leave. Yes, paternity. That was not a typo. And yes, paid.

So what is this rant now about women not getting paid to sit and heal from child birth and nurse their new born...?

Personally I love the idea of dad getting some time off too. Let him also have some time to bond with his new child and care for it. Esp first time dads who are learning to be a dad.
