And who would pay for this "maternal leave". We are 17 trillion dollars in debt. We need to cut spending, not increase it. If we don't do something, the U.S. will end up like Greece.

Maybe take it out of the ridiculously over-the-top armed forces budget...

You don't work, you don't get paid. Simple.

if she makes more than minimum wage, chances are she gets paid maternal leave

"I believe, although I could be wrong, that paid maternal leave is not guaranteed in the U.S. but nearly every respectable job will give it to you. Part time jobs and such do not grant it."

Quoting srskate there.

Apparently I was not entirely correct, and the maternal leave is usually not at full pay.

The chart's based on federally required leave. Just because it's not required doesn't mean most jobs won't give it.

I'd have to check, but I think that is usually enforced on the state level, there's just no federal requirement. Most jobs give a bit of maternity leave, but it's pretty short compared to most other first world countries.

Most jobs have it, it's just not enforced by the government

I'm not trying to legitimize the lack of policy but significantly less women in america have careers than women in other countries.
