Would-be par­ents have an ad­van­tage over peo­ple who choose not to have kids…

7 Days in Dubai - - CLASSIFIEDS -

Why is it that the de­ci­sion to have chil­dren im­me­di­ately cre­ates a spe­cial case as an em­ployee for would-be par­ents over those em­ploy­ees who do not have chil­dren? Small busi­nesses are crip­pled by ma­ter­nity leave and the es­tab­lish­ment of pa­ter­nity leave now in­creases this im­pact. Flex­i­ble hours etc, paid ma­ter­nity leave should be at the em­ployer’s dis­cre­tion. The choice to have a child is yours and your re­spon­si­bil­ity alone the im­pact on your ca­reer is part of that choice. Le Ros­bif UAE old male and re­cently I re­ceived an sms sug­gest­ing I could be one of the first one hun­dred fe­males for a free smear pap test. I also re­ceived sug­ges­tions from clin­ics - in Ara­bic, I had some­one to trans­late it - to re­store some­thing I do not have and never lost. Now I re­ceive an e-mail for a buy-one get-one-free body sur­gi­cal in­ter­ven­tion. Is this for real? And peo­ple com­plain­ing about mas­sage cards on­der their win­dow shields? Isn’t this the same or worse? It seems like ev­ery­thing is al­lowed as long as it brings money. Sad and un­eth­i­cal. sadand­wor­ried Dubai
