How The Zero Weeks Of Paid Maternity Leave In The U.S. Compare Globally | A Voice of Our Own | Scoop.it

Out of 178 nations, the U.S. is one of three that does not offer paid maternity leave benefits, let alone paid leave for fathers, which more than 50 of these nations offer. Here’s how the U.S. stacks up to 14 other countries.

In comparison, Canada and Norway offer generous benefits that can be shared between the father and mother, France offers about four months, and even Mexico and Pakistan are among the nations offer 12 weeks paid leave for mothers.

(thanks to @hjarche's twitter stream) Go Canada, Norway and France!
