Paid maternity leave is investment in our future
On International Women’s Day, there was an article in The News about the U.S. ranking as “most powerful country,” according to U.S. News & World Report. The ranking was based on the military budget having the largest share of the federal budget.
It’s nice to protect against outsiders, but we should also protect and provide for our own citizens and that can start with an increase in funding toward paid maternity leave. A better start provides for a better future.
