A group of mamas in Portland participated in a short documentary about the need for paid family leave in this country. We are used to the fact that when we go on maternity/paternity leave, we will not get paid. But we get our jobs back! Be happy you have a job! (see blog post Be Happy You Have a Job for my rant on this)
It is ironic and interesting to me that the news forum some Americans lambast as being the voice of terror -- Al Jazeera -- is the one to put this information out there.
Check it, because awareness leads to change.
