Dumb Poseur

Zuckerberg is such a cheap, boring poseur with his “I’m taking 2 months paternity leave.” He could easily take two years or two decades of a leave and still drown in riches. Are we supposed to be touched by this dumb posturing or something?

What a stupid tool he is.

    So will he actually stay at home for two months, totally ignore his company/ies which are worth billions and change diapers? I don’t believe a word of it. He has staff! He doesn’t understand ‘paternity leave’ for real people.

    Eh. It doesn’t matter except that Zuckerberg supposedly gives sends a signal to his employees to actually use their paid paternity leave since he’s using it. It’s an unwritten rule that you mirror your boss. If you have unlimited vacation offered but your boss never takes a day off, then you don’t get to either if you want to be promoted or get a raise or keep your job. Of course in practice, I’m sure it’s “reduced” which means not working a million hours a week but something like 40.

    Paid leave is not mandated in the US at all, and FMLA, which is unpaid is only available to workers who meet certain requirements at a workplace that has at least 50 people at that location.
