Parental leave is so rare in the US that Hobby Lobby’s CEO didn’t even know if he offered it

As of last year, just 13% of US workers received at least part of their paychecks for a period after a child is born. Mothers are more likely than fathers to receive paid time off, but that gap is narrowing. In retail, with a workforce that’s often part-time and paid hourly, only 7% of workers have access to paid parental leave.

  1. I BELIEVE IN PEOPLE BEING AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE DEPENDED ON THEMSELVES, INDEPENDENCE IS THE GREATEST GIFT YOU CAN GIVE ANYONE FROM ONE HUMAN BEING TO ANOTHER. THIS PARENTAL LEAVE IS A JOKE, IT IS ONLY FOR THE RICH, TRUMP IS CUTTING ONE TRILLION DOLLARS IN MEDICAID COST, ONLY TO GIVE TO IVANKA’S 25 BILLLION DOLLAR PARENTAL LEAVE. TRUE MEDICAID NEEDS REFORM. ONLY PEOPLE BELOW INCOME SHOULD BE ALLOWED TO HAVE. THERE SHOULD BE A PUBLIC AND PRIVATE INSURANCE OPTIONS. THERE IS SOMETHING NO ONE IN THE HELL HAS BEEN TALKING ABOUT, DOCTORS PERFORMING PROCEDURES THAT ARE NOT NEEDED; ALTHOUGH, TO TAKE PRECAUTIONS LAB TESTS OF NATURE CAN BE PREFORMED, AND DOCTORS DOUBLE BILLING, THERE IS CORRUPTION IN THE MEDICAL PROFESSION THAT ARE NOT BEING ADDRESSED. FURTHERMORE, WHY ARE NOT THE DOCTORS IN MASSES MARCHING UP TO WASHINGTON, D.C., AND IN THE HELL PROTESTING THEMSELVES AGAINST THE SYSTEM. WHY??? THE DOCTORS ARE JUST AS CORRUPT AS THE POLITICIANS. THESE ARE THE FACTS TOO.
