  • It's been illegal to discriminate against pregnant women since the 70's, but 2018 has brought us so many things that went out of style 50 years ago. Why should this be any different?

    It's just nice to see liberals not bullying women into having abortions, as if it's some sort of feminist right of passage.

    This is a two-income economy. Gone are the days where the mother gets to stay home. That’s now a luxury.

    Overly simplifying correlations surrounding pregnancy as intentional sexism doesn't help resolve any real issues.

    I like Sam b. And this show. But it always bothers me when shows quote statistics. Like who came up with 4% decrease in pay per child for women and 6% increase for men? What study? Who did it? What figures show these numbers? How was the study done to show these numbers? Why are these figures credible? Random statistics need some validity.

    You don’t want us to be pregnant. You don’t want us to have abortions. You don’t want us to have birth control. MAKE UP YOUR MINDS!!!!

    I worked 50 to 55 hours a week while pregnant. We where told we cant leave work until everything is done. If we left work unfinished then we would get a write up. Many people would get fired for essentially not working a 50 plus hour work week.

    I have to ask, if someone is less capable than the next person or is underperforming compared to their coworkers, do they deserve equal pay? Or if they aren't willing to put in the extra effort are they to be considered as viable a team member as their coworkers who do go the extra mile? I've been outperformed by women before who made more than me as a result. I've also seen women get hired at lower standards than their male co-workers for political reasons. Like female firefighters who get their job even though their performance was far less than the men they passed up to hire her. So for that sentiment I don't think affirmative action is the answer here. If you see this issue black or white, you're going to miss the reality of it. Each case is different, but not all cases are a result of merit and not all cases are a result of sexism.

    If the so called pro lifers were really against abortion they would be fighting along side feminists to make things better.

    Walmart has been discriminating against women for years. Take a peek at some of the EEO decisions out there lambasting WalMart for their behavior.
    After I returned from maternity leave, I was called into the boss’s office and told he didn’t want to hear me discussing the baby. I was to do my job and not answer questions or chit chat. However, men and most non-mothers could discuss anything for as long as they wanted. My employer? The US Government, the ones who are supposed to be “model employers”. Yeah. Sure. Okay. Right. Mhm.
