AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: This is a policy which, if you had spent more than ten minutes working on it, you would realize that there were huge holes. But they apparently didn't spend that. So first, it's not a maternity leave policy that should be called “paid maternity leave.” It's not based on what your income was. In many states, the maximum's going to be over $1,000 a month. And second, who pays for it are the newly unemployed. He's taking the money out of unemployment insurance and diverting it to the maternity leave. It absolutely makes no sense.
