Husband gets no maternity leave
My husband and I are expecting our first baby this August, and we will also be in a new house. Our families aren’t close, so he’s all I have for help. He’s been with this company for years, and works 50+ hours a week. They told him he gets no paid leave. They told him he could take 5 days off with no pay; but since he is the sole provider for our family, we can’t afford that. It breaks my heart because he told his boss he would be taking off for a day or leaving early one day in August (when she’s born) and his boss even gave him shit about that. He’s an electrician, btw.
Just felt the need to rant. I want my husband to share time with my daughter and I. He works from 7-7 and will hardly get to see our daughter.
