And forcing businesses to give women paid maternity leave will make businesses less likely to hire women because they'll be a greater potential burden on the business. This will make women less competitive in the job marketplace.

I was referring to if government mandated through law that businesses payed for this benefit our of pocket.

I don't hate taxes, I just hate unnecessary taxes. Why make people who don't have or never plan to have children pay for the benefits of people who do? Gay individuals sure don't benefit from it unless a woman couple goes through a pregnancy program .

If businesses themselves decide to give their employees that benefit, which a good majority of businesses I've had experience with do, that's fine. Just don't use the force of government to do it.

I think that might just be an American thing. I can see where you are coming from.

I still think 6 weeks isn't that unreasonable. It's allowed us to make a stable foundation for our family rather then have to worry about A - Money B - How we manage our care duties. Paid leave doesn't have to be exceptionally expensive I have not recieved that much money whilst I've not been working, but it's helped a lot covering new expenses which we entirely overlooked. Call us idiots despite both holding degrees, we grossly underestimated the amount of nappies required, not to mention the time investment.

Even if unpaid but mandated it would allow as I said earlier for health issues to be spotted and treated promptly at a lower cost. Especially considering the cost of healthcare in the US. So it might even save insurance companies and taxpayers money. In keeping them healthy you're saving future work hours, think of it as an investment.
User avatar
#126586 - marinepenguin (09/14/2016) [-]
I'm definitely not arguing against maternity leave in general. It's definitely a benefit for the parent and child.

My biggest issue with it is using the force of government make businesses pay for it which it's actually a fairly large expense that considers more than just wage for the individual on leave, you have to consider lost productivity and paying a replacement among other things or an overall tax to make the general populace pay for a service they may personally never use.

I think Trump realizes he's gotten all of the conservatives he possibly can without attempting to crack #NeverTrump, which is going to be difficult if not impossible at this point.
So he's switching gears and trying to appeal to the gray area and maybe some from the left that are disgruntled towards Hillary.

It's a smart move in my opinion. Conservatives supporting Trump aren't going to deny him their vote unless he does something Hillary-tier, and even most might overlook it for the grand scheme of things. The status quo of seeing Hillary as a 'lesser evil' was peeled off virtually overnight in the wake of the leak of emails and other key documents, leaving many people on the fence. The reasonable option is Trump makes moves to convince those people on the fence to take his side or at least abstain from voting and hope his base is stronger in number than Hillary's.

That wouldn't be surprising if it's true she had convinced Donald to fire Lewandowski. Ivanka seems to be taking steps to generate a large political presence that would substantiate a great deal should Trump achieve presidency. Even if Donald probably doesn't hold such beliefs, Ivanka seems to with considerable focus unlike other relatives of previous presidential candidates, who take more bystander approach to politics. What Ivanka chooses to do in the future could make a big difference for the campaign.

Depends on what the statistics show. 6 weeks would allow time to pick up on any post-natal difficulties which when treated earlier result in less work time lost. It would work well in contesting the middle ground, since in most of the developed world maternity leave is without question, both as a matter of practicality and health. 6 weeks is comparatively little time, eg. I've spent the last 6 months out of 9 doing nothing but learning through trial and error how to parent. I even wrote a series of short stories...

It's more of a burden on the small business itself and can potentially lead to women being valued less in the workforce.
