Strange things I heard

Are the two possibly true???

From the Huffington Post:

"A study done last year revealed that a mother is 79 percent less likely to be offered a job when all other factors -- including resumes, education, and job experience -- are equal."

"Out of 173 countries, only four have no paid leave for new mothers -- Papua New Guinea, Swaziland, Liberia and the U.S.A. (One of these countries is not like the others.) Our health care system is the most expensive in the world per capita, yet our child mortality rate is 37th."

Besides, you would think that they would include countries like China.... Does China do that... I always assumed they didn't...
