Where are my Benjamins?
Okay. I am a stay-at-home mom. I gave up a career in advertising to take care of our children. So I am unemployed? Shouldn't I get benefits or a tax break? Someone who needs my job more can fill it. Isn't that a benefit to society? Giving my children constant care and attention, isn't that a benefit to society? And yet, where do I benefit? We hire a cleaning service which also provides income to someone else, isn't that a benefit to society? I have never been happier or more fulfilled in my life and yet, other people, other women, tell me I am neither? Ummm, suck it. And where are either my tax breaks or government benefits?
