You're really getting into the weeds here.... What you're describing is socialism or communism. We aren't either and we don't need to be. But that's for another thread. Let's not hijack this discussion around maternity coverage.

If you don't care to have your biased personal opinion challenged then don't inject it into threads. As it is, maternity coverage is the law of the land. The OP asked, "Why?" The answer is, "Because it is the law." That's the reality of the situation. Comments beyond that fact is political bias. If the bias you don't like is inappropriate in the thread, then so is your bias. Choose one or the other - either we're including each other's biases in the thread or we're excluding all such biases.

Hijacker, heal thyself.

No company is forced to GIVE you insurance only to offer it and aren't required to pay a penny of it.

I think that a company that offers generous maternity coverage is only encouraging employees to take more time off from work and contribute to less productivity.

what healthcare issues do you have that i might not want to subsidize?
