Fantastic article. It tragically hits on so many truths of modern life. I find it especially tragic that the article begins with a sort of apology for your “privilege”. I have never understood and how working your butt off so that you can make enough to support your family in decent lifestyle after you have sent a big chunk of your income to the government to support those who are unable or unwilling to support themselves is a “privilege”. Who should you thank for this privilege? I don’t think you should have to apologize for working hard to go to college and build a career, and the reason the government doesn’t give you paid maternity leave is because it needs you working and generating tax review to pay for those who would call you privileged.
