cbowns with the knowledge bomb on how much the US (and specifically tech) sucks for prospective mothers:
Maternity (and paternity) leave policies in the United States are well-documented as the worst among first-world nations. You’re not guaranteed a single week of paid leave. If your company is more than 50 employees, you’re legally allowed up to 12 weeks of unpaid leave.
Putting some feelers out there for an intern in San Francisco! I cant pay you with money BUT I know the illustration biz and how to kick ass at drawing and I could teach you BOTH as payment for a few hours of your time a week.
