U.S. and Papua New Guinea May Be the Only 2 Countries Without Paid Parental Leave. Is It Time to Change That?
At Wednesday's Democratic debate, Andrew Yang, Amy Klobuchar, and Kamala Harris tackle the question of paid family leave.
- Yang leaned into his call for universal basic income — his main platform has been offering $1,000 per month to every American — to help fix the problem. He said he would give families up to $2,000 per month to spend on child care.
- “We should not be pushing everyone to leave the home and go to the work force,” Yang said. “Many parents see that trade-off and say if they leave the home and go to work, they’d be spending all that money on child care anyway. In many cases, it would be better if the parent stayed with the child.”
So if you have kids you can receive double the UBI. It's still not enough to live off of alone, making the name completely bullshit, but now you will get an even bigger give away if you have kids. FREE FREE FREE!!!
Oh, I'm sorry, it's called the "Freedom Dividend" now. I guess this is the "Pregnancy and pediatric dividend bonus package" that you can get as an add-on option?
