More Maternity

babywardWhile kudos are due to Netflix and Microsoft for dramatically increasing their paid maternity leave policy, this will damage career prospects for woman as they will now probably be out of the labor force longer than before. A better solution; force all employers to require the mother and the father to take equal time off work. This will reduce the size of the “baby penalty.” Alternatively, offer enhanced daycare subsidies.

Correction: In the email I sent out last night, I incorrectly wrote that the debt limit is $18.2 billion. The actual number is $18.2 trillion. Oops!
