      This is the way to handle it...


      if people decide to have say kids then it is on them NOT the job market and other people with out kids to pick up the slack. They should keep their jobs but understand the financial hardships.

      Either one would work imo.

    Its interesting you put that, because, I think kids are a factor in the hiring of women for jobs.

    Lets assume, you have a woman in front of you, she's about 27 and married. At the moment there are no kids. However, there will be soon possibly. And then, at least in the UK, you will have to pay this woman 7 months of full pay when she goes on maternity. If she works a key role, you will then have to get somebody else in and pay them also to cover her role. So you are paying two people for one job.

    If she elects not to return to work when the baby is 6 months old, she can carry on getting half pay for an additional 6 months till the child is 1 year old. You then further pay two people for the same job.

    Now, assume you have a man in front of you also 27 or 28, he's married. Yeah, he might become a father soon. But, doesn't matter. You only have to pay him 2 weeks of paternity in the event of a child and then he's back in work. Hooray!

    Which is cheaper to the employer?

    Difference in earnings is more economical than it is sexism IMO. I think the women who bear the brunt of the earnings gap are in fact women of breeding age, because they work out more expensive than their male counterparts.

This is definitely a factor. And some how they are expected to eat this loss of money and its sexism if they don't.

That's why I feel either give it for both or don't give this 1yr break for both.
