Just in time for Father's Day, a new survey shows that more new dads did not take time off of work when their bundle of joy was born.
According CareerBuilder's annual Father's Day survey, two-in-five working fathers who had a child in the last three years did not take any paternity leave.
The survey also shows that for the fathers who did take time off, 59% took one week or less and 47% said they felt pressured by their company to return to work early.
Only 35% reported that they would be a stay-at-home dad if their spouse or partner made enough money to support the family.
That's down from 37% in 2008.
