The United States isn't easy on working mothers. It's one of only two countries in the world that doesn't offer paid maternity leave, for one thing. (The other is Papua New Guinea.) And even if mothers get the financial support to make it through those first few months, they're offered little support when they return to work. Most need to pay for childcare, which can cost as much as 35% of a family's annual income, depending on the state. If companies offered on-site childcare as a perk of the job, many employees would benefit. So why don't they?
