Reading an article on The Washington Post I found this:
"The study pointed out that the United States is the only OECD country that does not have a national paid parental leave policy. Some states have started to adopt such policies, but most parents are offered 12 weeks of unpaid leave."
The article was about children raised by one parent. I'd like to understand two things here:
- What does parental leave policy mean?
- What does 12 weeks of unpaid leave mean?
The great problem is the word leave put together with parental.
