Maternity leave in Canada vs USA
The most heartbreaking vision is a new Mom having to take her child to daycare after Maternity Leave. Maternity Leave in Canada and the USA is so different.
In this article it is perfectly clear:
The U.S. has one of the poorest support systems for pregnant women and new mothers in the world. The Canadian system, on the other hand, provides at least a partial ongoing income for almost a year to give families time to adjust to the new addition, as well as a guarantee of re-employment after a lengthy leave.
So what is the answer for new Moms?
So what are Mothers doing in Canada and the USA? They have looked for part time opportunities that they can do from home. 82% of women who have turned to Direct Sales are making more than $100,000. Not bad for part time jobs distributing jewellery, pots and pans, spices and condiments, and health products don’t you think? So why don’t more women try it. Where else do you get free training, make amazing friends around the world, contribute to your local community as your income grows and you give back.
It is a great time to learn in the pockets of time you have between feeds etc. I am part of an International company that helps stay at home Moms and Dads make money. They are learning new skills, gaining positive personal development and while doing so, they are able to do extra things with their family with this income. I do not just show people how to start a business I show Moms how to stay healthy during and after pregnancy. It is stressful enough, why have additional money problems when you start your family?
Right now I am teaching my daughter the skills she needs to make money working from home. She is the proud Mother of 3 children under 6. When she got her first $400.00 cheque she could not believe it. She used the power of the Internet to connect with her friends and distant friends using Social Media like Facebook. She no longer has to worry about daycare, or when the kids are sick, or professional days when she has to find a sitter. Her life changed because she was open to an opportunity. It is one that I teach to other Moms. Why not contact me and find out if it will suit your lifestyle. Thousands are very happy they did.
We may not be able to change the Maternity benefits in Canada vs USA but we can look for opportunities to help support our families and have fun doing it.
