At least where I am, for the most it is only government who can afford to do this

Most business that have more than 100 employees can afford. I think it really encourages women in workforce. When my son was born, my wife took time off from work, I mean she quit to raise my son. It is impressive she could come back and enjoy a successful career. For many young women, it is extraordinarily difficult to make a choice between having children vs career. Many young women choose to freeze their eggs hoping someday they would be secure in their jobs and can have children. Of course there are other social issues at play here, but when a young women has to make such choice, I think as a society we are putting profits over everything. So, I disagree that it is uneconomical as a society. Some small organizations may have a big of challenge but most organizations can handle this.
