Next is FMLA for unmarried hetero couples living together?
This is nothing more than a bone to attempt to buy the Gay vote. No doubt it will work for some, but I fully expect the economic screwing the Gay community will take (along with everyone else) under this administration will counter this one.
But where does this stop? Next should be hetero couples as stated above. They are in no less loving and committed relationships than a Gay couple. And paid...I mean...it's only fair that FMLA should be paid, right? It's not their fault they need the time off.
Your employer owes you a fair wage for a fair days work. You own them the converse. If you can negotiate a bunch of other crap, great. the government needs to stay the hell out of it.
