OUT of 173 countries......

the United States is one of FOUR yes I said 4 that does not have a National policy for paid maternity leave...the other other countries are Liberia, Papau New Guinea and Swaziland.

That is very sad.

There is the FMLA for unpaid leave but company has to have more then 50 people.

SOMETHING needs to change.

that's always bothered me too! I'm so envious of the countries who have paid maternity and paternity leave!
