Spanish Dads Get Breastfeeding Vacation
Spain is one of those socialist countries somewhere in Europe. As such, people who live in Spain don't have to work all 666 days of the year. And now, just to add to the socialism, Spanish fathers get to take time off from work, to breastfeed their children:
The European Union Court of Justice has ruled that working fathers in Spain have the same right to breastfeeding leave as do moms.
Thursday's ruling grants Spanish dads the same rights as the mother of their child to leave work up to twice a day for a total of an hour or to shorten their workday by 30 minutes for the first nine months of the baby's life.
The court called the law "an unjustified discrimination on grounds of sex" in that fathers weren't granted breastfeeding leave in the same instances as women were.
Socialism or Justice?
