I work for the state government at a higher ed institution.
I'm debating leaving since I'd like to have kids soonish - there is no maternity leave. You have to take short term disability which is a maximum of $800 for 6 week leave and shockingly, does not meet the state mandated minimum.
Guys? They get nada. No paternity leave at all.
I feel trapped in this job. This is the only employer in the area that doesn't require an hour long commute, pays decently, and offers health insurance.
