Report: Apple, Facebook to pay for women to freeze eggs

This is a new one.

Quote:
Silicon Valley is known for offering incredible job perks, but the latest moves by Apple and Facebook could help the companies attract more female employees.

Spokespeople for both companies tell NBC News they will pay for employees to freeze their eggs. Both companies will cover egg freezing up to $20,000.

The report says a typical egg-freezing round costs about $10,000, with a $500 or more fee each year for storage.

The coverage by Apple and Facebook is part of a growing trend to beef up employee perks at Silicon Valley companies to recruit new hires. As the AP points out last year, tech companies are expanding their office campuses to offer multiple employee perks. For example, Google boasts on-campus child care, nap pods, a bowling alley and a shared community garden.

Pretty big perk, and freezing eggs is a lot more common than people might think.

So Apple and Facebook are building up inventory for their clone armies? Got it.

Good on them though.

or bribe women to not have kids until they are done working at the company. we have your eggs frozen, so we'll give you a $2,000 raise for each year you work here and don't pop out a kid.

That's a good way of thinking about it. A lot of women do feel penalized in the workplace for having to leave during the prime of their career to raise children. At least they have an option to keep working through those years and can decide later on life if they want children and if so, there's less likely to be complications as the egg(s) came from their younger years. Plus it costs companies money to backfill positions or train others when women take maternity leave.
