Paid parental leave is a right, not a favor

Maternity leave madness

Netflix announced Tuesday it will offer up to one year of paid parental leave for employees
Elaine Eisenman: More companies need to offer paid leave and see it as a “right,” not a “favor”

Elaine Eisenman is the dean of executive and enterprise education at Babson College and manages the Babson Executive Conference Center. The opinions expressed in this commentary are hers.

(CNN)In expanding paid parental leave this week, Netflix rises to the top of a relatively small number of major companies that provide substantial benefits for employees who are raising families. This is great news for their employees, and a sad reminder of the situation that about 87% of parents face.

Netflix announced Tuesday that its employees will have up to one year of unlimited, paid parental leave following childbirth, excluding the company’s DVD division. (Microsoft has already followed suit, disclosing Wednesday that it will add eight weeks of paid parental leave to its current policy, beginning in November.)
Elaine Eisenman
Full disclosure: As a mother of three and a soon-to-be first-time grandmother, I am biased and passionate about this topic. My pregnant daughter is a consultant with an engineering firm that, like the majority of employers in this country, simply follows federal requirements when it comes to parental leave policies.

When she asked her firm for a copy of its maternity leave policy, it sent her the Family and Medical Leave Act policy, which is federal government-mandated and provides 12 weeks of unpaid leave. FMLA can be combined with her short-term disability benefit, which will pay 66% of her salary for whatever amount of time is approved for her to recover from labor (typically six to eight weeks). The remainder of the 12 weeks allowed under FMLA will be unpaid.

Herein lies the issue: Many companies believe that they have a generous parental leave policy when, in fact, they are simply complying with the law and not truly investing in their employees’ well-being after their children’s births. Incredibly, the U.S. is the only country in the developed world that does not require employers to provide paid maternity leave. (Paid paternity leave, on the other hand, is less common globally.)

Indeed, according to the U.N. International Labor Organization’s “Maternity and Paternity at Work” report, this country and Papua New Guinea are the only two countries in the world without paid maternity leave.

Our young, working parents struggle to afford to do the best for themselves and their families, but their choices are constrained. They must choose between paying the bills (which are even higher with the new family addition) and staying home long enough to recuperate from childbirth and bond with their infant during those critical early months.

As a business school dean and former executive, I fully understand the challenges that companies have in addressing this conflict — and the smaller the company, the greater the challenge. This challenge becomes more acute when one considers that companies such as Netflix, as well as the growing number of other companies that offer substantial parental leave, will ultimately win the talent wars for bright, innovative and committed young people.

As Netflix’s chief talent officer Tawni Cranz wisely noted, “Netflix’s continued success hinges on us competing for and keeping the most talented individuals in their field. Experience shows people perform better at work when they’re not worrying about home.”

This is a simple equation: Talented people — both men and women — stay in jobs where they feel their needs are understood and their employer is committed to doing the best it can to ensure they can contribute at the highest level.

Companies such as my daughter’s current employer will say they cannot afford paid leave (as they are a small company) and are reliant on the revenue produced through the billable hours of their consultants’ work. One must ask, however: Isn’t the cost of ultimately losing and replacing talented employees who can and will move to companies with family-supportive policies even more expensive?

We know that families need support, and that new, small and emerging businesses clearly cannot afford to match Netflix’s offer. Covering a talented employee’s salary while he or she is on leave for four or more months — let alone a year — is more than the annual profits of many small businesses.

But the challenge is not all or nothing, or one year of unlimited paid leave versus FMLA only. Finding a workable and affordable middle ground is essential. The solutions are neither easy nor obvious, but it is critically important that we ask the right questions and be expansive in our thinking about how best to address this need.

The bottom line is that creating paid parental leave is not simply the “nice” thing to do, but rather the “right” thing to do from both a business and a family values perspective. From a business perspective, the return on investment in building employee commitment and productivity is truly priceless.

It is time for all employers to realize that companies such as Netflix aren’t simply generous. Rather, they are shrewd in redefining the competitive playing field for talent. In truth, the only unbeatable point of differentiation in the marketplace is talented people, and talented people flock to companies that support their goals, both professionally and personally.

Paid parental leave may well become a cornerstone of business success. The question, then, is how to develop both policy and practices that can and do simultaneously support family and work needs. Creating realistic solutions to these challenges is essential for all businesses, big and small

-Most modern nations offer maternity leave of 6 months to a year and that’s pretty damn cool in my opinion. Those nations also have major job protection in the event of injury as well. They also do not have privatized prisons recycling minimal offense offenders through the system until they cannot even get employment due to a criminal record. These nations also do not trap people in an endless cycle of welfare because they subsidize college and have higher educational standards in primary and high school! Colleges would no longer be driven to sell worthless degrees that could not be applied, THAT could also be written into policy!

Of course, they still ARE far to the left of Hillary Clinton and aren’t working the true prison scumbags to their potential. Those idiots could provide nations with a nice little work force that they could provide with 3 hots and a cot and nothing else, no cable TV, no pay and no weight room, just hard labor. 

The point is is that a strong primary education followed by a strong subsidized college education would elevate the intelligence level of the general populace and deter more crime and poverty. Those who refuse to educate or work for a welfare check would receive nothing. As you know by now, I would also legislate birth and do away with the notion that it is a ‘right’ to have kids. It is not, it is only a right if you are emotionally and financially ready to take on that RESPONSIBILITY.

In short, maternity leave is a good start as long as it doesn’t extend to minimum wage jobs. People need to get it back into their tiny brains that minimum wage was NEVER meant to raise a family on!

Not a fucking hipster. Not a Democrat OR Republican!

Standard

I have to say that I am NOT a fucking hipster or a hipster follower. I am myself who believes in what I believe with the backing of the Matt Dillahunty quote, “I want to believe as many true things and as few false things as possible.” Therefore, I believe that a balanced opinion out weighs a skewed right or left opinion. I believe passionately in socialized education and Social Security, but think that privatized prisons need to be eradicated in favor of mandatory DNA convictions regarding death penalty cases. These people could be worked under hard labor conditions 6 days a week instead of being executed. They would have NO access to appeal and would become non-people, working for the good of mankind only. Therefore; NO death penalty!

Drug addicts would be afforded free needles and drugs until they OD or ask for rehab. Two rehabs and no results equal no state benefits EVER again! Demonstrate PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY and succeed, demonstrate idiocy and fail! My system would include a second chance, but would excommunicate you if you prove too moronic to save. Soylent Green could be an option because these idiots could be ground up into meal, melded with soy protein and used to feed starving nations of idiots too stupid to stop breeding in an area where food cannot be raised.

I know that people fall to bad luck at times, but they usually get back on the horse and drive on instead of breed too many kids that they cannot support. These are the common sense people that usually get tasked to support the LEGIONS of Medicaid leeches that force their entitled asses on the working people of America expecting the free ride that their lazy, worthless asses are receiving by convincing vacuum-headed liberals assholes that they are victims instead of stupid, gutless shithead fucktools.

I came from homeless uninspired trailer trash who made excuses instead of achieving and I credit me for elevating MYSELF! There was no luck or woo involved, I just decided that I wasn’t going to prison or back to the trailer park, so I educated MYSELF and didn’t act like the majority of worthless asshole minimum wagers of today. I chose to use condoms and have kids when I could feed them and put a decent roof over their heads without Section 8 assistance. I used my brain and if they can’t, then they deserve what life doles out to them. I resent helping these entitled fucks out and always will because I work for them so that they can sit on their lazy asses!

There needs to be a system of education in place to offer, or community work to perform in exchange for an assistance check, THEN these people can exercise that immense sense of entitlement that they always demonstrate when consuming services that the taxpayer provides!

In short, the focus needs to be on green energy, education, more education, and forced labor camps for hardened offenders instead of asshole lawyers and ACLU idiots that feel sorry for scumbags.

Awesome science!

Suspect in killing of San Francisco woman had been deported five times
By Steve Almasy, Pamela Brown and Augie Martin, CNN
Updated 12:21 PM ET, Sat July 4, 2015
Suspect in San Francisco killing has been deported before
Suspect in San Francisco killing has been deported before 01:09
Story highlights
San Francisco Sheriff’s Department says there needs to be court order or warrant to give undocumented immigrants to ICE
Kate Steinle, 31, was killed in a random shooting Wednesday at a tourist spot in San Francisco
Her accused killer, Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez, had seven prior felony convictions

San Francisco (CNN)Kate Steinle was walking on a busy pier in San Francisco with her father when there was a single popping sound in the air.

She fell to the ground, struck by a bullet, the victim of what police say appears to be a random killing.

The man accused of firing the deadly shot — 45-year-old Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez — is an undocumented immigrant, a repeat felon who has been deported five times to Mexico, according to immigration officials.

It would have been six, a federal law enforcement source told CNN, except authorities in San Francisco wanted him on a drug-related warrant.

So U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, which had Lopez-Sanchez in its custody in March after his release from federal prison, turned him over to San Francisco deputies. ICE said they requested an immigration detainer, asking that the agency be notified before Lopez-Sanchez was released.

But San Francisco is a city that doesn’t honor such requests and the sheriff’s department released him. Freya Horne, chief legal counsel to the San Francisco County Sheriff, told CNN that he was let go because there was no legal cause to detain the suspect.

On Wednesday evening, he shot the 31-year-old Steinle at Pier 14 once in her upper body, according to police. He was found about a mile away an hour later and arrested. CNN could not determine on Friday if he has an attorney.

Family: She was loving, smart, beautiful
Steinle’s father told the San Francisco Chronicle there was one pop and his daughter fell to the ground.

Video shows several people trying to help the young woman.

“She just kept saying, ‘Dad, help me, help me,'” Liz Sullivan, the victim’s mother, told CNN affiliate KRON.

Steinle, a medical device salesperson, died at San Francisco General Hospital. Sullivan said her heart stopped twice on the way to the hospital and she died during surgery.

“She fought for her life,” Sullivan said. “They said how strong she was but they just couldn’t save her.”

Family members called her loving, smart and beautiful. Her cousin said she loved her mother and father “more than anything.”

Several of the dozen or more people on the pedestrian pier took photos of the suspect and showed them to police.

Suspect had seven felony convictions
ICE said it turned Lopez-Sanchez over to San Francisco authorities on March 26 for an outstanding drug warrant. The agency requested an immigration detainer, but Horne said San Francisco officials believe that violates Fourth Amendment rights against unreasonable searches and seizures.

The sheriff’s office said, “When Mr. Lopez-Sanchez was booked into the jail, there was no active Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) warrant or judicial order of removal for him.”

The department would have returned Lopez-Sanchez if there had been a court order or warrant, it said.

Charges were dropped March 27 but Lopez-Sanchez was held until April 15 while the sheriff’s office determined there were no other warrants for his arrest and he had completed his federal prison sentence.

According to KRON, San Francisco’s policy on undocumented immigrants “states that a law enforcement official shall not detain an individual on the basis of a civil immigration detainer after that individual becomes eligible for release from custody.”

The federal law enforcement source told CNN the sheriff’s department “didn’t even need to hold him. They simply could have notified that they were going to release him and we would have gotten him.”

Police said Lopez-Sanchez last lived in Texas, where he was on probation. ICE said Lopez-Sanchez has seven felony convictions, four for drug offenses. His most recent deportation was in 2009.

He was released from federal prison in March after serving several years for felony re-entry after deportation.

Lopez-Sanchez is in San Francisco County Jail and faces a homicide charge. ICE has requested another immigration detainer.

-I do not blame all immigrants from Mexico for crime, but I do believe that a strong border fence with automatic fingerprinting is the answer and that the system of injustice in ‘Murca needs to change starting with the scum sucking lawyer. This asshole mentioned above should have disappeared down a fucking hole forever and been beaten to death by his fellow scumbags. These shit fucks have too many rights to appeal justly given sentences and gated community liberals continue to pour out sympathy for these animals leading to the death of more innocent people. 

In a world of justice, the common man doesn’t have to mortgage his life to get representation. In a just world, DNA evidence is always allowed and if you have the weapon in your hand and fresh blood on your shoes, you do NOT get referred to as “My client.” In a just world, a worthless criminal disappears into the system and is worked to death and that is the end. Innocent people need better representation and the guilty need less rights. 

The fact of the matter is that someone’s daughter is now dead because the way too liberal system had dropped the ball and this career criminal asshole was afforded ‘Rights.’ Shame on these fucking idiots for being responsible for a beloved family member’s death, the death of someone who was an employed producer and mattered in the village scheme. She was killed by another worthless unemployed criminal piece of shit who just wandered over our joke of a border. Praise to those who work their asses off to accomplish the dream, but there needs to be 100% more accountability at our southern border that we share with a third world failed state run by drug cartels.

Musings on the week in news.

Standard

First of all, I would like to send out a heartfelt thanks to B.B King, who died this week, for all of his incredible contributions to relevant awesome music. This trailblazer has been a staple of my music selection since I was in my late twenties and will be there until the day I also pass. He was the master blaster of Blues guitar.

I would also like to commend the jury in the Boston Bombing case for handing down the verdict to smite that little scumbag, Joker Tsarnaev, from the face of the Earth. Batman, you won’t be needed here, and The Joker won’t go to Arkham this time, he will he injected with a poison to snuff out his worthless existence once and for all! Thank you Logic, for prevailing in the face of uppity Massachusetts liberal elitism that dictates that saving scum is a humane and forward thinking practice. When shitbags blow children up rape and murder, kidnap them as so many prisoners in the system have done, it says little for our race that we are backward enough to justify not putting them to death. And when a dirtsack can tear apart so many bodies in the name of a mythological figure and be considered for a life sentence, the Human race really needs to take a look inward at where their thought processes have become so utterly twisted.`I can safely say that I hope this rat squirms in his chair for an hour before succumbing to the cocktail of drugs that will make this world a better place on that historic day. Fuck him and fuck his belief in his despotic killer deity.

Due to the content of this rant, I would like to add a few things about my system of belief that will shed some light onto why I am such a logical, clear-headed person. I grew up in very scummy neighborhoods across the country that were inhabited by the very poor and the scum that preyed upon them. If you had intelligence, you figured out how to keep yourself safe most of the time, while at other times, even the most wiley could end up catching a stray bullet for no apparent reason. If you were a bit dim, then you perished or learned to make the best out of being used by thugs and reprobates for the rest of your miserable existence.

Life was extremely tough and I was given no breaks at all in my journey through the ghettos of America. I suffered and was forced to steal to support and feed myself as well as the many others who were not given a choice of lifestyle. I, though, decided on my own, without assistance from anyone else, to figure out how to leave this life behind for good, this was called, “Taking personal responsibility.” Many never do this and are instead, given lip-service considerations by the liberal elites as having absolutely no way of alleviating their own suffering. This is the thinking that the poor buy into that keeps them down and looking like mooches on the system as their community leaders would have them do. I, of course, refused to bring a family into this and made the conscious choice not to do so. Not everyone can use insight such as this, but through widespread, actually funded socialized education programs, instead of the dismal failures of a system that we have now, poor kids would at least be given a chance in the Corporate States of America, to succeed and elevate themselves beyond poverty.

But then that would eliminate the desperate masses of poor factory worker mentality people that the Koch Bros. are cultivating so that the can keep them at a perpetual minimum wage. People can change this at the grassroots level by deciding not to commit crimes and banding together to resist the influence of the oligarchy. Yes, it seems to be an insurmountable task, but it beats prison and being referred to as sheep by the intelligent folks who actually made their way out of the ghetto under the same oppressive circumstances the current residents still face.

Idiots will say that because I am white I had a better chance. I will counter that I made the right choices and consciously decided not to hang with a criminal element and chose to reject drugs as a way to anesthetize my bruised self-esteem. I made my choices. I busted my ass. I didn’t get help from anyone besides myself…..see a pattern? I will again refer to Personal Responsibility. Why did I not turn to the same fate as that do-nothing Scummerlan Tsarnaev? That self-righteous bastard and his brother, who were brought here from another country by their parents, supported by the American Welfare system and lived in Section 8 housing because they were lazy sacks of shit? Why, you ask, did I not sit around on the public dime hatching plots to steal or harm others? PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY! I will say it over and over. That worthless piece of shit couldn’t even hold a job to support that idiot wife of his and the child that they knowingly brought into their terrorist midst! What a testament to how extreme liberalism has utterly failed and how extreme conservatism exploits the weaknesses of the left by stealing all of the wealth! As a side note-don’t even get me started on that weak-kneed sop of an idiot, Katherine Russell who converted to an oppressive religion and gave up her freedom and who had inside knowledge of what was going on in her own hovel and refused to do the right thing except for being a punching bag for a terrorist bully. She lucked out when she should be behind bars, if anything, for being a complete waste of space!

The only way out of the world’s current problems, is through aggressive population control. If you have to have a license to operate heavy machinery, then you should be required to have one to do the most important job that you will ever do. Fuck freedom at this level, NO ONE has the,’right’ to abuse a child and that is what happens when people are allowed to breed like roaches. We have over 25 million human slaves in the world today, partly because of an unchecked population, and partly because of the criminals that, as I mentioned before, haven’t been rightfully put to death because of liberal bullshit twaddle thinking! With DNA evidence or, as I say, the smoking gun in hand and fresh blood on the shoes, pedophiles, rapists of any kind, murderers, human traffickers, the criminally insane, should ALL be eliminated as soon as possible! This is only LOGIC, not pithy bullshit elitist sentiment designed to cloud the mind with false morality, just logic and the ONLY way to save children en masse and save the Earth from eminent demise.

Corporate welfare needs to be eliminated, green energy needs to be widespread NOW! A system of social education needs to be enacted to level the playing field instead of relegating the poor to welfare and servitude. Drug addicts need to be given prescription for heroin and given needles so that they may continue their destructive behavior without criminalization. When they decide to get clean, then, and only then will rehab work for them. Court mandated rehab is an abject failure and needs to be gone. Many will fall by the wayside due to their own poor choices and that is just life. Invest the wasted money into prevention and early intervention. Build camps where criminal drug offenders can manually work off their sentence when they victimize others. If they desire to reenter legitimate society, then get them rehab!

I can tell you that the reason that I’m an atheist is because it allows me to think much more clearly and to separate the morality from mankind’s penchant for enacting systems of socially enforced PC false morals. I skeptically approach EVERYTHING and do not give any credence to populist speakers and leaders who try to shove unworkable shitty policies down the throats of the masses. My style can best be described as informed, workable, sensible and logical, flying directly in the face of the current ideas of the backward thinking intellectual elitists who claim to be sooo enlightened above the realm of common sense. In other words, I’m not a pedantic fucking asshole who does 2 years of Peace Corps work and afterwards locks myself behind the gates of a rich community to tell everyone how goddammed unequal the social system is without getting my feet dirty EVER again. I’m not that type of fucking hypocrite. I just do my research and spell out the hard workable sensible choices that need to be made.

These are a few of my thoughts and musings and if they smack some in the face, well then, TOO FUCKING BAD! Don’t listen or read! Peace out everyone and I’ll see you later!
