Facebook and Apple Now Pay Female Employees $20k Not To Have Babies

   There is no gain saying some professions are male dominated. Quite a number of such fields tend to be time consuming. Time, being the greatest challenge of every woman who wants to have a family, and at the same time, a career.  But maybe there is a solution somewhere. Apple and Facebook will now pay for employees to freeze their eggs.

Facebook recently began covering egg freezing, and Apple will start in January, spokespeople for the companies told NBC News. The firms appear to be the first major employers to offer this coverage for non-medical reasons.

“Having a high-powered career and children is still a very hard thing to do,” said Brigitte Adams, an egg-freezing advocate and founder of the patient forum By offering this benefit, companies are investing in women, she said, and supporting them in carving out the lives they want.
