This week’s comic pretty much says it all. Some nations give women a year off of work, fully supported financially. Here, women are lucky if they get a week or two. And men, forget about it. Of course I know I have a nice life and nice job, and I’m living better than most people do. But we’re not talking about something that’s going to make or break your life or something that’s worth quitting your job over. We’re talking about a quality of life issue that shows what we value most in this country. And clearly it’s corporate profits.
*Edit: Compare the US to other countries around the world. It’s really embarrassing.
