    No, getting knocked up should cost the employee $ if anything. It's a choice and all. Funny how this would be a conservative position, like the one circumstance where the employee gets any time off.

    Something like $40/day in 3rd trimester to keep their job instead. In cases of rape, they get 1 day paid leave for abortion.

    Just telling the truth.

    There is NO way I hire a woman in her teens to mid 20s, especially if she's recently married.

    Would you buy (and pay full price for) a gallon of milk that reaches an expiration date tomorrow? Would you go to an AYCE buffet if all you wanted was a half plate of food?

    We're talking "bang for the buck" here, and young women of breeding age are more trouble than benefit - exceptionally so if this became mandatory.

    I know from research work that plenty of women would take full advantage and get knocked up nonstop just for paid maternity and not have to work. I mean if she's always pregnant she's not in the workforce, so where's the impact on society except overpopulation by large welfare families?

    Here is what a real working mother can do: dump the kids at Amish babysitter and go back to work. This is what mine did and it meets both your criteria.

    Only would if she or the govt paid me for their maternity leave, which is the opposite of this bill proposal. Even then you have to find and train a temp replacement or pay others overtime to get her work done. Then god knows if she'll actually return.

    So i agree but you know how the mods are here.

    Immaterial. They can't do anything about opinions within the scope of rules.

    If they offered paid leave (mandatory) for women, they'd have to do the same for men if they recognize their child for birthing purposes. I seem to recall us having an amendment for this purpose.

    It's rather simple really - all the liberals, socialists, and anti-capitalists resort to nothing more than argumentum ad populum with this crap. "Because every other country does it" is not enough reason.

    Well that's a good point about paternity leave, especially after the kid is born. Why should the mom automatically be the one to stay home to look after newborn? But you know plenty of conservs will support this too as 'pro family'/religious

    Which has nothing to do with what I asked you, and no man spoke in the SCOTUS today on behalf of women.

    Conservatives can be wildly wrong on a ton of stuff too.
