Pay Maggie for her work staying home with her children

Maggie has taken an unpaid leave of absence through no fault of her own.  She has left a job she felt competent at and felt good about to assume a job at which she feels incompetent.  Society has announced, through its pay actions, that her job in the bank is worthwhile and worthy of compensation but her job in the home is worthless and unworthy of pay.  This is precisely the wrong message for us to send.
