EU plans longer maternity leave, employers give warnings

The fear is that Employers will think twice about hiring women of childbearing age. There’s a simple solution. Give men equal rights to women; make paternity leave the same as maternity leave. This removes the ability to discriminate from the employer (there will be nothing to discriminate over), and it stops penalising men from enjoying the same family rights as women purely on the basis of gender. It’s sexism, it’s wrong.
