Danish parents are entitled to a full year of family leave after the birth of a child. The mother gets 18 weeks, the father gets two weeks, and the remaining 32 weeks can be divided between both parents.
The government pays a portion of their salary, depending on the type of job. For example, manual laborers receive 90% of their salary, while nonmanual workers get 50%, up to a certain limit.
About 84% of mothers with children under 15 are employed.
