The Paid Maternity Leave For All Mothers sign now

I believe that all US mothers, regardless of whether they physically give birth, adopt, or become mothers via surrogacy, should have access to six months paid maternity leave.

Six months paid maternity leave is essential to helping families achieve a work/life balance. Health experts agree. The World Health Organization says that breast feeding exclusively for 6 months (provided the mother can) achieves optimal health results for babies. Six months paid maternity leave makes this possible for all women.

We ask for a legislated, government funded system of six months universal paid maternity leave, available to all mothers irrespective of whether they are part time or full time employees. It should also be able to be accessed by parents who are assuming the primary care giving role.

To provide for full wage replacement, the system needs to match the changes demanded of the contemporary workforce whom experts say may have five career changes in their life time. This could involve an employer contribution scheme similar to workers compensation where employers share responsibility for supporting this right at work.

This leave should include a base rate of pay, provided for by the government with full wage replacement to be aided by employers.
