They don't have paid parental leave in America?  Your country is f*cked, you couldn't pay me to live there.

But you'd have a greater chance of running into Gaga :poot:

I'm confused, what happens if you're pregnant, you gave birth, you lose your job? 

Depends on the workplace. Some businesses may offer paid maternity leave or they'll allow it but it's unpaid. Men usually don't get it at all but I've had a few at work take it (we're a pretty liberal company anyway so they don't care). However, there's no national legal mandate saying business owners are required to extend paid maternity/paternity leave to workers. You can take it and it'll be unpaid but they won't necessarily fire you for taking it.

That's amazing! This really helps engage women into the labor market (-> economic growth). Doing it for both mother and father equally ensures that males don't get a benefit in hiring. 6 weeks is a good start.

"The United States is the only developed country that does not guarantee new mothers or fathers a single day of paid time off. Trump’s proposals would change that, but the six weeks of paid leave would still be much less than other industrialized countries." 

USA always doing the bare minimum and years late :rip:

Yes. 

Who needs affordable health care and education when you can work work work to make corporations richer? Who needs days off? 

Then still have not have enough saved for retirement?
