Now the boys are steaming up!

With only 35 percent of the votes in favor, the residents of the canton of Zurich gave a clear rebuff to parental leave last Sunday. Only the city of Zurich spoke out in favor of the SP initiative, which called for 18 weeks of parental leave for new mothers and fathers. And that only with just under 53 percent.

The initiators are sobered. One had certainly hoped for more, said the Zurich SP National Councilor Min Li Marti (47) to the “Tages-Anzeiger”. The canton of Zurich’s no is a “strong damper” for national parental leave: “It’s more difficult to launch something in Bern after you’ve shipped off in Zurich like that.”
