    How about if the employer holds back 20% of the womans salary while she Works for the company and if she gets pregnant, the company gives her the money.

    Problem solved.

    Are you saying the government pays for the leave?

    But who pays for it?

    So we have established that in Canada and Mexico the government pays the mother for the leave, not the employer.

    Obama wants the employer to foot the bill, which is not like the rest of the world at all.

    Does anybody know about other countries and how they work?

    Why are you singling out Russia here? What about Belgium, Canada, the UK, China, Japan, South Korea, Guatemala, Brazil, Costa Rica, Venezuela, France, Singapore, Somalia, Egypt, Poland, Ireland, Italy, Romania, Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan, Mongolia, India, Pakistan, Israel, North Korea, Cyprus, and the many, many, many other countries that have found a way to make maternity leave happen? And what a great research project this would be! Any interest in tackling it?

    I'd say relative to a single earner per household, I.e. A full time mother maternity leave should not be a problem. Otherwise, yes I think a parent should be able to shape their children without excessive economic burdens stopping them from otherwise.

    Wrong person lol

    This also brings up the gay aspect.

    If two gay males are adopting a baby, should one be entitled to paid leave to bond with that baby?



    Works for me.
