“In total, I’ve spent 18 of the past 36 months on paternity leave here in Sweden, my adopted country, ‘off’ work to care for my two kids,” he writes. “And, yes, I still get paid.”
That’s right, the Swedish government allows sixty days of paternity leave (with the opportunity to split maternity leave with their wives.) Needless to say, 85% of Swedish father take advantage of the golden opportunity to hang out with junior.
Paternity leave isn’t unheard of in the U.S. (it’s just considered super weird). What do you think? I’m thinking we should move to Sweden.
