I know that some people are off their rockers in Cali, but this one takes that cake

www.kcra.com...


The new legislation would allow state workers to bring their babies to the office if they are between 6 weeks to 6 months old or until the baby walks, whichever happens first.


There is nobody that supports parents being with their baby in the early months more than me, but this is insane. Could you imagine babies in your office or workplace. There is not one single job i've ever had that it would have been appropriate.
Pretty soon, they will expect taxpayers to pay those babies too. I'm not saying it wouldn't work at all, I'm just saying it wouldn't work in most places.
How about the people that don't want to hear crying all day. We know how well some parents watch their kids. This is just a disaster. I doubt it'll pass, but you never know, we are talking California.


How about instead of this, we work on maternity and paternity reform. Or, how about parents make sure they are ready, financially, emotionally and schedule wise before they have kids!

Jesus, it’s a BYOB.
There will be some fad women getting pregnant just so they can carry their baby around in their purses.
Like they do with those little dogs.

I've seen much worse ones from California. This is typical California politics.

I think that's the thing, only STATE workers. So no worry about the brat suckling the cashier at Micky D's or Bugger King.

Somehow, in my mind that even makes it worse!
Can you imagine babies at the DMV, or the courthouses........

Zoe is one of more than 140 babies who have participated in Schools’ program. About 20% of the caregivers who participate are fathers working for the credit union.


Not sure about other parents on here. My middle child had severe colic, and due to sleep deprivation I almost burnt down our house. Yeaaaaa, That's exactly the kind of person I want doing my banking, NOT!

A purse these days is usually a phone wallet case where you can hold your credit cards in,

Bring you fetus to work, takes less space than a credit card!

Just leave some Tide pods laying out. Nature will take care of the rest.

I like the idea under one condition.

Baby battle royal, a hunger games if you will.

We all bet on which baby gets the bottle in the middle.... No rules.

One winner.

On top of the back plate for the forks... Dual purpose. You get to keep an eye on them while you work, and it should serve as a natural alarm if you get too close to the ceiling.

Yeah, imagine you wait in line for 2 hours at the DMV and when it's your turn the woman working your counter has a crying baby, so she takes 20 to breast feed and you are left waiting for another 20 mins (becausse she is the only one handling "that" issue that day)..

This is the dumbest thing I've ever heard. If they want to do it at personally owned businesses and the owner wants them there, that's one thing, but if it is state workers, that wouldn't be a good idea.

I believe it's totally worse. We've all been to these sorts of environments in one way or another, why would anyone want their baby, in their most influential times of their lives, to be absorbing those environments?? I'm just trying to imagine ladies in the social security office with their babies while they're telling someone they aren't getting the help they need all the while the other person is yelling at them for not being helpful.

Not only that but those people already have a lot of work to do, I can only imagine how much less work would be done if they're constantly taking care of their children while at work. I don't understand at all how anyone could think this is a good idea.

I’d be demanding she be multitasking in that situation. She can keep a hand free for doing paperwork

I took my kid to work once. We were in the mainframe room and after getting over his amazement he pushed the emergency stop button on one of the mainframes. Like I said I took my kid to work ONCE.

I would personally rather pay an employee to stay at home. Why would anybody want a baby stuck at their work all day?

That is priceless, and see you are still telling the story. Imagine if you had 6 months of those stories!
