The Yuppie of today can shop around for countries (and employers) with the best parental leave arrangements. I had a bit of a look around the internet today and saw that there are countries where men get ZERO paid parental leave. Very few countries today offer men the same amount of paid parental leave as women.
I think men should get the same amount of parental leave as women. If I had children, not only would I want to be able to have some paid parental leave, but I'd also like my partner to be able to take the same amount of time off. I think that if it's always the woman who stays home, that's exactly how imbalances in childcare arrangements fall into place. Why should women be the primary carer?
