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?

    Why Does the School Day End Two Hours Before the Workday? This mismatch creates a child-care crisis between 3 and 5 p.m. that has parents scrambling for options. On the whole, conflicting school and work schedules cost the U.S. economy $55 billion in lost productivity each year, in large part due to parents (mostly women) who scale back employment and the lost productivity when parents have to take off work during school closures. “We often think about this as a problem every family faces, and it just happens over and over again in this systemic way: The mother cuts back on her hours for when school is closed,” said Catherine Brown, an education-policy researcher at the Center for American Progress. “Why do we have a wage gap? Partially it’s because of this, I believe.”

    So women allegedly lose 4% of their wages after having a baby and men gain 6%? Well, maaaaaayyyybe it's because women are less productive after having kids and men have to pick up the slack. Limited work duties while pregnant, 12 weeks of paid vacation after dropping the kid and then there's doctors appointments, school functions and the inevitable daycare problems. And don't think fathers wouldn't want some time off to do those things, it's just that, since men make more, the family depends on the father's salary more. And things only get worse when number two comes along.

    Given these amazing conditions, it's really a shock that the birth rate is dropping...I wonder why? I guess women these days are just sooooo selfish!

    I understand the need to ensure women keep their jobs or are given lighter work while pregnant. I think it's needed. I am ashamed of my country that this isn't already happening. However I'm worried about stating women make less money after becoming pregnant. What should we do? If a man works the same job and never takes time off work for child care should his wage be reduced to match a woman who takes time off? Should her wage be increased for time she spent not working? Should a man who has more experience because he never takes time off work for child care be passed up for promotions to give more opportunities to women? Should a woman be given a promotion despite having less experience because she took time off for child care? I'm not sure we want to go that route. All studies show that women who have never had children make more money than men. The gender pay gap is a societal issue with women and childcare, I don't think it's something the law can or should be made to handle. Perhaps instead we need to encourage men to play a more active role in their children's lives and when equal time is spent in the home by parents regardless of gender we can look into fixing the wage gap. Perhaps this is something which will happen naturally through automation and a post scarcity world. I can hope.

    Ohhhhh, I thought pregnancy discrimination was when a woman passes on having your baby. I thought saying, "Please let me knock you up," gave you a legal green light. Okay, this saved me an embarrassing call to the office of Jim Sokolove.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    A woman I work with, who has a BA masters, told her boss she was pregnant and he told her that she "just threw away her career." By the time she came back her job was surplused, renamed and given to someone else because she wasn't allowed to apply. She had 3 months to find a new job or else she'd be "permanently" released from the company. She ended up taking a job that paid 1500 less per paycheque.

    "...on average, men's earnings increased more than 6 percent when they had children..." and she sarcastically says "and oh god they deserve it." Wow, could it be that men have to work harder and longer hours to support children, which could produce the same outcome? No that's ridiculous huh, must be because of the patriarchy

    I watch and support Samantha but this is based on both fact and fallacy. 82% payment due to not working as much and men work more due to supporting wives and that is based on averages. It is a genetic need and that changes the numbers a lot and those that have to work do work but more woman don't so 82%.

    When it comes to fighting on behalf of pregnant workers, making it so they can't be fired for their condition and the bosses have to accommodate them, it's mostly the Pro-Choice feminists who have taken up the cause. The Anti-Choice crowd is awfully silent when it comes to fighting so that women don't have to get an abortion to save their careers. Gee, I wonder why. :eyeroll:
