“Starting in January, [American Express] will expand its paid parental leave policy for mothers and fathers to 20 weeks at full pay, plus another six to eight weeks for women who give birth and require medical leave.” From Slashdot: American Express Will Give All Parents 20 Weeks Of Paid Leave

Um, look, this is probably a good thing. But at this point, every time I read news like this, I always find myself asking “what’s the catch?” I’ve been reading stories like this (where a corporation manages to display the slightest hint of compassion) for 20 years now, but the world still seems awfully shitty.
