Sweet guest blogged for the Work and Family Blog about his experience at the conference on Community, Work and Family IV. He related a few tidbits of how different societies treat workers and families regarding vacation and family leave, pointing out that in Nordic countries fathers as well as mothers are granted paid family leave. “While many of us remain hopeful for paid family leave in the U.S., I doubt that anyone see even a remote possibility that any such policy could contain a comparable component specifically intended to increase men’s participation in care work.”
