Well, you know…shit.
why would you pay someone for 26-51 weeks for doing nothing
you have a very, very odd definition of “doing nothing”.
because it’s in the law… in Finland… to ensure that women on maternal leave have an income… so they won’t have to depend on their significant other, have time for taking care of an infant and not have to live in the fucking gutter
Jesus, my aunt had to kiss so much ass just to get two months unpaid leave, but there are places where you get 52 weeks of it?!
I’m pretty sure paying someone 26-51 or more weeks so that they can take care of a small fucking human is called being a good person
Anyone who thinks taking care of an infant is “doing nothing” is out of their fucking mind.
