i've been thinking lately about work situations, and how people with children have an easier time taking days off.
i am "child free" by choice. i am never going to have a child, and will never be given maternity leave. if i call in because my dog is sick, some bosses don't approve of of it. if i have a job with good benefits, i end up not using them nearly as much as someone with 5 kids.
it's great that people have babies, i am happy for them. i just want things to be "fair" at work.
there's an article today on this very topic. click here to read.
