Well, you know…shit.
why would you pay someone for 26-51 weeks for doing nothing
you have a very, very odd definition of “doing nothing”.
raising a kid isn’t providing for your workplace though so honestly…
Like keeping your job secure and making sure you have something to come back to after maternity leave is one thing, but your child and obligations to said child do not, in fact, help your company make more money.
I can’t say anything about how exactly it works in other countries, but in Estonia, it’s not your company that pays for the paid leave, it’s the government. And how much they pay you depends on how much you have worked in the past set amount of time, and what your salary was. And why they do this, is to promote children being born, since as it stands now, the people are slowly growing older and dying out. There’s a similar situation in Japan, where the population is getting older and older. Also the amount of paid taxes varies greatly within countries, and that influences this as well. In Estonia and the Nordic countries like Finland, Sweden etc. people pay a shitload of taxes (upto 80% of their total income goes into taxes) and that is why you also get benefits like cheaper/free education system, cheaper/free healthcare and so on.
But yeah the US system is kinda fucked up in many ways. Many, many ways.
welp, so my pc’s psu burned out suddenly and I’ve been without my pc for a few days.
My toes hurt from all the ant bites fml.
So fucking done with ants. We got like a surprise invasion or something. I’ve been bit so many times now I can’t even. And I feel like phantom ants constantly crawling all over me. UHHHHHHHHH.
