The US and Maternity Leave

How is the US so far behind everyone else? I have always thought that it’s completely wrong that working moms don’t get paid maternity leave. Personally I have always felt that maternity leave should be separate from sick leave. You shouldn’t have to use your sick days for maternity leave and it should be paid. Since women are the only one’s that can reproduce, why do they get the short end of the stick?

About alyshacarmody

I'm an art teacher aka working mom that has two wonderful boys, ages 4 and 9 months. My husband is a police officer who works nights; so I find that my style of parenting isn't always what others approve of, but it works for us! I am very crafty so I am always finding new projects to try and think that I am "green" or at least try to be. My philosophy is live laughing and loving. This blog is intended as an adventure so we'll see how it goes...
