I have been a partner on and off for almost 8 yrs. I have a 4 yr old and didn't get enough time when he was born. He was in the NICU off and on for almost 2 months. He had heart problems and I was stressed about work when it should have only been my first born son. People behind a desk aren't any better then we are as barista. We all should be equal in sick leave and maternity as well.
