    Women's Issues is just a name for the gender studies course I'm taking. If you want to, and I get a decent grade back, I can send you a copy of my paper with more importantly, the reference list so you can do your own reading.

    More importantly, it is for mostly political reasons why there isn't a federal paid maternity leave program. The Family Medical Leave Act (Google this) allows for 12 weeks UNPAID leave, with the key word I put in caps. So yes, women can take time from work for maternity but it isn't paid and California doesn't cover 100% of the salary during the time off - just 55%.
    sure that would be nice :)
    ok ill look it up. though I do remember that my history teacher would leave for a few days once his wife was about to have the baby.so im not sure if he got payed or not. anyways ill figure it out once Im done searching for it

    It is eligible for men too, and can be used for people who need time to care for a sick family member...although it typically gets used for maternity leave. Look up the Pregnancy Discrimination Act too while you're at it. Yes, before that act was passed, women could and did get fired for being pregnant.

    You should get a Tesla! California's the best place to get them since (I'm pretty sure) they have more superchargers than any other state.

    Superchargers are Tesla's network of free chargers.

    ok ill do that. I was also reading that there is controversy with having this act since they argue that is much more expensive to employ females because they could "abuse" this

    so it essentially protects pregnant females and making sure they have a fair chance of getting hired and if hired they cannot fire them if they leave for maternity leave.
    that brings me to the question of how can a she prove that she not given the job because she was pregnant

    I really wish I lived in California. All the cool stuff is there:

    Big FIRST Robotics community
    Tesla
    SpaceX (I'm assuming that since Elon Musk is the CEO of Tesla and SpaceX, and Tesla is headquartered in California)
    Elon Musk
    TEN Microsoft stores (I'm not sure how widespread they are though)
    Silicon Valley
    Other things I can't remember off the top of my head.
