Businesses should only grant paid maternity leave for two kids and sick leave.

@4YCZ8L4from California  answered…2yrs

The lack of paid leave in general is a system that only begets inefficiency cycle after cycle. In some countries, men and women will have up to a year or two of government or privately sponsored sick, and more importantly paternity/maternity leave. This is because other countries know that to properly raise a child, one must really be around all the time in the early years, if possible. I believe the lack of time spent in raising a child can be reflected in the sad state of affairs in this country. People grow up less ready for this world, and ultimately less connected to it because they didn't have their father around a lot as a kid, who was constantly working late to give me and my sister a better life. And in that regard, I advocate family leave in general.

Yes, But both businesses and government should share in this. Businesses should pay proportionally to their profit and the government can subsidize the rest.

Yes, the lack of paid sick leave is unfair to working men and women. Additionally, the federal government should mandate this requirement.

@95RFF49 from Minnesota answered…2 days

Yes, but funding depends on company size. Large companies fund it themselves, small companies get government funding.

Businesses should not only be required to give employees paid leave on sick days but should be required to give at LEAST a 1 month PAID vacation every year. & make those sick days unlimited or offer a temporary remote/work from home position.

@95CHRH3Libertarian from Tennessee answered…2wks

Yes, to the maternity leave because the woman still needs time to heal after having a baby. However, with a sick family member businesses should be required to only if the employee provides verifiable proof of the sick family member.

The employer and the employee should determine the benefits in a mutual agreement which not only protects the interests of both parties but builds trust.

It should not be required for companies with a low amount of employees, but it would be nice for companies with 100+ employees, however, it is a part of a companies competitive incentives.
