This is not true. Maybe you meant no government paid maternity leave, but I get 12 paidweeks from my company and I am a male



There's no mandatory company paid maternity leave. Companies can do whatever they want. It's awesome you get 12 weeks paid.

Surely. It's a lot like how it should be. If you want paid leave and other social perks, select an employer that offers them. You'll get paid a little less than a similar employer could pay without perks, but better life security. Or, if you're in a narrow work field, dictate your terms.

Of course you need to have a valuable job skill to be able to do that. Industrial technologist, structural engineer, medical specialist.
But in the end, who is it that we want to have children - valuable professionals or people with no more ambition than to flip burgers and get paid?

Don't feed the trolls.

This forum has very few trolls compared to other ones so I understand everyone's naivety. It was a very obvious and shameless troll post.

That's why I quoted what you wrote and suggested you meant something other than what you wrote. You said there is no maternity leave and companies will only give 3 months off unpaid. I pointed out that is not true and gave an example. If someone wants maternity leave paid for maybe they should get a job that pays it. If they can't afford to take time off and won't have any money to pay for their kid then maybe it's not the best time to have kids?

We know he's trolling. At least I do. And anyone who read his roulette mystery revealed thread. But there are different kinds of trolls, just like with humans. Some are annoying and intolerable like JL, others are a spark of light in the darkness of all internets. This is the kind of troll that is mildly amusing. Treating all trolls the same is just racist.

1 - Do you think there's enough people in the US that can afford to have kids, that can sustain a population? No.

2 - Do you think that everyone in the US can get jobs that will give paid leave if they work hard enough? No.
