Do Mandated Benefits Boost Employment?

Do Mandated Benefits Boost Employment?

If you don't know the answer to the question posed in today's title, then you most likely have not been listening to this show for very long. An article in the Financial Times this week sparked some anger deep down in my belly when it supposed that part of the reason we have such a low labor participation rate may have to do with the fact that we don't offer paid maternity leave for woman.
That is quite possibly the dumbest reason I've ever heard to advocate for mandatory paid leave.
In today's show, I break down the truth behind the numbers, and I give you some great ammo for anyone who suggests mandating such benefits might be a good idea.
We also talk Russia and the rising cost of health care. Don't miss the show today. It's a must listen!
