I noticed its very hard finding a job with good benefits these days, just rare to find. I did have one in a Uni and ended up being pushed out cos of my health, could never get another with those benefits since, its such a shame

First, MOST family caregivers are mothers. This just goes right along with the other areas of our lives where women/mothers have no rights to "life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness" without dire consequences. Look anywhere in the system and you will see that mothers' rights are FAR BEHIND women's rights and with either of them we are ruled by a male dominated world where we are expected to contribute to the family FINANCIALLY and TAKE CARE OF THE FAMILY as the primary caregiver as well.

Civil rights, human rights, women's rights, mothers are neglected in all areas.

There is an idea that I have had since I worked for a major corporation for almost ten years and saw the workforce both come from OUTSIDE THIS COUNTRY and was DOMINATED BY MEN, even at the cost of twice the salaries of women in the same occupation. This is just one more travesty of justice against mothers and women. I lobbied for, and after being reprimanded by human resources, won the right for pregnant mothers and mothers who had just had a baby, to work from home. Telecommute. It was hardly a common thing in the 1990's and management did not like "losing control" of their cheap labor workforce. So, women who ONLY DID COMPUTER WORK, tracking shipments and monitoring progress of inventory in route, were eventually allowed to do their jobs from home. They were happier, more productive and their families more stable than those who worked up until delivery and came back to work when their baby was six weeks old... That being said...

If we could GET OFF OF THIS 40 HOUR STANDARD WORK WEEK and the government would subside a fourth job for every three employees, there would be much less costs for unemployment and other areas of financial support, 25% more people would have jobs and everyone would only work 4 days per week, and have three days with their families. In any job where the occupation is covered by more than one person at a time, they could TIME SHARE their jobs and take whichever three days off (Fri/Sat/Sun or Sat/Sun/Mon) or whatever combination worked for that industry. We are all slaves to corporate greed and government dysfunction andit is time for a new "rule of thumb" for our living arrangements within a society that demands we work to survive and provides minimal growth in the job markets for 80% of the workforce.

YES, mothers need more flexible time, the family primary caregiver, whether mother or father, needs more time off and the workforce of AMERICA needs to evolve with the times and let us get out of the factories and back to our families and this should be a primary objective of our nation's government and corporations.

IT IS TIME FOR THE PEOPLE AGAIN, big business, government corruption and greed have been in charge LONG ENOUGH. I will sign and share this and ANY PETITION THAT RETURNS THE RIGHTS OF THE INDIVIDUAL CITIZEN TO A FAIR AND EQUITABLE standard of living, which was taken from us in the INDUSTRIAL AGE.

IT IS TIME FOR CHANGE. The oppressor NEVER grants freedom willingly, it must be DEMANDED by the oppressed. IT IS TIME FOR US TO DEMAND OUR LIVES BACK, END WAR, SUPPORT THE FAMILY UNIT, END ABUSE AND CORRUPTION OF THE MONEY IN OUR GOVERNMENT AGENCIES, AND TAKE OUR COUNTRY BACK FROM TYRANNY AND GREED. Please sign and share this and other petitions that support FAMILY RIGHTS. We have worked hard and long and neglected our families in order to financially survive and we have lost our children to a system that is corrupt and steals them for profit through the TITLE IV-E funding provided for foster care and forced adoptions. THIS WORLD is out of control, run by organized crime and greed and IT IS TIME FOR CHANGE! thank you all for all you do... carry on. that is all.

Iain....your an idiot and you are mean ! So get your skanky butt to work and make a ton of money so YOUR wife and the mother of YOUR children can stay home and not have to go to a job outside of the home. That way she can focus on taking care of your home , children and you too. That is IF you have a wife and children . And if you don't ...then please don't speak ! God Bless You !

We wish the sister! ..
This is a message make good Mhafqh like you and win, and warning of Kidd Alkaúdan and cunning to lose your dignity, and Igrack in mud underworld.
How reformers suffers for you and you do not feel, how Etjron Almraúr in order to preserve the chastity and purity, you do not know.
The life is short, though Hereafter long long, not Taatjla Shahuatk, Beware of the thrill of an hour followed by unhappiness sustained, patient for sedition and tribulations, you today in trials...

Yes most family care givers and mothers. This does go hand in hand with taking care of our other family members too. Our families do need us even IF we've also got to work too. Women's roghts need to get taken more serious as well too.
