There was no maternity leave when I had my children, there was no day care either! However as an employer how can I pay someone when they are out on maternity leave? Where will I make enough profit to hire a fill in; which in case you are unaware is an extra salary.
Sure I know what taking care of a baby is like and dont you think it something we all think about prior to getting pregnant? Yet, you are asking my employer to pay me for caring for my baby?
