This is mainly down to the lack of maternity leave, right? I'm about to go off for a year (I live in a civilised country).
"Sign up for unemployment immediately" Presumably this is aimed at US audiences, because this sentence makes no sense otherwise?
@Kaitlyn Kochany@twitter agreed - I find it absolutely mindboggling that Americans talk like this is a normal, acceptable way to treat citizens of a wealthy country. I lived there for a few years and people just accept this completely shitty, unbelievably flawed system. It's your health you're talking about - and the health of your society - it should take priority for your lawmakers. I moved back to Europe (mainly because I have better things to do than navigate and pay through the nose for this system) and many of my American friends couldn't believe I thought there was a better quality of life outside the US. I don't want to be like 'wake up sheeple!!' but really...

Why did I read this days before I leave the Bay Area for good :( PS please don't say 'from whence'
