In many countries women are allowed to take maternity leave from their jobs during the first month after the birth of their baby. Do the advantages outweigh the disadvantages? 20181013
Taking a baby break, in many countries of the world, is one of basic rights women deserve, which is empowered by laws. This, naturally, arouses the comparison between its merits and demerits over the public. From my perspective, this issue is definitely advantageous to the advances of our society.
On the one hand, there is no gainsaying that the maternity leave is conducive to both the mother's and baby's health. Primarily, as a common sense, the process of giving birth is of countless pain and even a certain level of risk. Females after that tough period certainly deserve a convalescence, during which their physical and mental health can be recovered effectively. Besides, undoubtedly it is the mother who is able to offer the best care to her baby, and thus the mother is supposed to stay with the new-born baby as long as possible. Before the baby was born, he or she was familiar with the voice of the mother, and that is why the voice of the mother can pacify the baby and make the baby feel safe.
On the other hand, some objectors to related laws stress that female job seekers and employees of childbearing age might be influenced negatively because of the right of taking the maternity leave. The reason is that the leave can, to a great extent, enhance the labor cost of the company and reduce the productivity of female employees. Nevertheless, authorities are capable of making some other laws to avoid the sexual prejudice in the job market. For instance, rejecting female job hunters of reproductive age or firing them only because of their age can be outlawed. Hence, with the relevant legal protection, females in the workplace can be treated equally as males.
In conclusion, according to the above analysis, this essay can readily come to the conclusion that advantages of this issue obviously outweigh its disadvantages.
