Italy could be the first western country to offer paid PMS pay to female workers. It is being debated now and it would mandate that women receive 3 days off a month for painful periods. Health experts praise this as a step in the right direction and will relieve women suffering with PMS's plight.


Italy could soon become the first Western country to offer paid “menstrual leave” to female workers.

The proposed law is currently being debated in the country’s parliament. If passed, it would mandate that companies enforce a “menstrual leave” policy and offer three paid days off each month to working women who experience painful periods.

Health experts and local media outlets have praised the proposal, saying it was a step in the right direction and would shed light on the silent plight of women suffering from debilitating cramps that can sometimes affect their ability to work.


This could keep women from being hired by making it more expensive them, Italy already has one of the lowest women worker participation. Also, one in 4 women get fired just before or after getting preggy.

Writing in Donna Moderna, another women’s magazine, Lorenza Pleuteri argued that if women were granted extra paid leave, employers would be even more reluctant to hire women, in a country where women already struggle to integrate the workforce.

In fact, due to enduring cultural stereotypes, Italy has one of the lowest rates of female labor participation in the workforce , with a staggering one in four women getting fired just before or after getting pregnant, according to the Italian National Institute for Statistics.

Now that sounds good, send the woman home when they are on the rag, they are crabby around that time of the month most times, so might as well just get them out so they don't upset everyone else.

Well, I can say that women deserve them.


Periods that is, not the days off.

Obviously an overt attempt to pad their salaries.

I think men should get paid leave when the women are having their menses.
