News: Better Educated Women Get More Paid Maternity Leave

As if you needed another reason to hit the books: a new study from by the U.S. Census Bureau found a direct correlation between the education level of moms-to-be and paid maternity leave.

Findings showed that while the numbers of women taking paid maternity leave is at an all-time high, those numbers directly relate to a woman's education level. Over 64 percent of women who had a college degree received paid leave, but only 16 percent of women with less than a high-school diploma did.

 What do you think of the new study's findings? Did you get to take paid maternity leave? Leave your comments in the section below.
