Why are you comparing yourselves against former 3rd world countries? Canada is part of the Americas and gives 50 weeks! Come join the 21st century already USA!
The US believes, and correctly, that pregnancy is a voluntary condition. Why would I pay in any manner for someone else’s choice?
It’s even worse than this on the broad spectrum. The US has ZERO guaranteed paid days off each year. That’s right, none. The country does average 12 paid days off per year (the total for vacations, sick time, holidays, and other leave), but that is a drop in the bucket compared to other nations.
For instance, countries in the EU are mandated to give 20 paid holidays each year, in addition to other Paid Time Off (PTO). Most average in the high 20s-mid30s, with Italy averaging 43 days off per year (paid).
Our species does not exist solely to slave away so that the uber-rich can have another yacht or manor. The human experience is about enriching our lives and enhancing our experience, not just work. Of course, the economic elites and their conservative whores want nothing more than for you to stay in the dark about this and keep working longer, harder, and faster for less.
