Mothers For Paid Maternity Leave

LET'S CATCH UP TO THE REST OF THE WORLD!! The U.S. is on the bottom of the totem pole when it comes to maternity leave or caring for sick children or family members. Would you believe that 177 countries offer PAID maternity leave? The FMLA allows for up to 12 weeks of UNPAID leave- Big Deal! We are to busy spending money on how to get illegal immigrants in or out of the country, bailing out big businesses, and supporting well-abled people who choose not to go back to work instead of supporting mothers who are raising the future of this country. Have you ever given your child medicine before school and prayed the nurse wouldn't call? Have you ever felt you would be fired if you called out of work yet again for a sick child? Have you ever sent your child to school sick because you couldn't afford to call out? By signing this petition, you are helping to fix a very broken system- a very SAD system- and allowing mothers and fathers NOT to have to choose between their jobs and their families.
