Child free staff should get some sort of bonus after 5+ years of no kids.

I doubt it will ever happen but I wish it would. I’m child free and am in the process of setting up my vasectomy. My work is generous with paternity and maternity and that’s awesome for them. But all we end up doing is covering every time they are out on leave indefinitely. We are over worked because people are constantly out on leave. Everyone else scrambles to get regular PTO but the people with new borns can just hop in and out work whenever. Yes I agree it’s necessary and great but my point is the child free folks are shafted.

I would love if some company would give some benefit to child free staff. Say like if you haven’t had a kid for 5+ years while working there you get X amount of extra money per year. Or even just extra PTO, we don’t even have sick leave FFS!

I know it will never happen… but one can dream. I just want child free folks to stop being screwed over.
