On Mother's Day, John Oliver talks about the lack of paid maternity leave in America

Mother's Day: A day all companies piggyback on, to sell themselves, but do nothing for the mothers who work for them.

Mother's Day. A day that is celebrated all across the world. A day that is celebrated for that one person who is always there for us: Our mothers.

In this episode of 'Last Week Tonight', John Oliver tells us how.
