San Francisco Becomes First City to Require Paid Parental Leave

America is not known for being a leader in employment rights. At the risk of sounding socialist, some of the rights afforded to employees in other countries are virtually nonexistent in the US. For example parental leave is something virtually unheard of in United States. If you want to have a kid you better plan to set money aside or have a very generous employer.

New York City is approving similar measures as well.
