WTF is an "unemployed minimum wage worker"?

Isn't a worker, you know, EMPLOYED?

CreamK-"I do find it odd that US don't have any paid leave for having a kid."

Why would you get paid for not working? Some companies do. It`s a perk.

Ozmose-"The US has been topping the charts in infant mortality for some time now."

Do a little research and you`ll find the majority of the difference is because of the different ways countries define a `mortality`.

In the US, ANY baby born breathing that dies is considered a mortality.
In some countries, premature babies born alive but later die are considered `miscarriages`.
Some countries consider a baby who dies in the first 24 hours as `stillbirths`.
France, Czech Republic, Ireland, Netherlands and Poland do not report any live births of babies under 500 grams or 22 weeks of gestation (which tend to have high mortality rates).
For Russia and Soviet Union, it`s 1,000 grams or 28 weeks.

Is there specific legislation for smoking in schools, or is it referring to the wider encompassing smoking ban within the work place?. Notice the spin between the two.

That's like showing a graph where it`s illegal to shoot a certain type of can in a certain manner, not mentioning that the key difference is whether the ownership of the gun itself is legal.
