Suffering through a conference call this afternoon, my attention picks up when two colleagues bring up their impending maternity leaves.
Eight weeks’ leave only partially paid, working until the water breaks and returning full time afterwards.
Probably five weeks’ leave prior and at least a year absence. Income paid at about 75 percent, right to same job level and reduced hours upon return. Health insurance, no problem.
A little credit goes to the generous company, most to the country. America is not all it’s cracked up to be.
