    Default Maternity Leave

    Was talking about this in the office and guys wanted to know why men only get 10 days vs women 42 days? If the couple is mil to mil, the vote is they should both get the sametime off what do you think?

    When a man pushes an 8 lb baby out of his penis he can have 42 days off.

    Men should be happy with the 10 free days non-chargeable leave. It is women who are having the baby. Us as men are there for support. There was a time when men did not get any paternity leave.
