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.

    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.

    You Get into a car accident and get injured? Lose your job. You trip and twist your ankle and can't do your job? Lose your job. You face any unforeseen occurrence that accidentally hurt you? Lose your job. You Make the choice to get pregnant or choose to continue and pregnancy? Society needs to bend over backwards to help you? That's garbage and discriminatory.

    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.

    If you don't like what happens when pregnant maybe stop getting pregnant? The world is suffering from severe over population as is, we would all be better off if breeding required a license and was highly regulated.

    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:

    Implying that the entire wage gap between women with and without children is the fault of this discrimination is reductionist. Someone has to put a lot of time and effort into that kid after it's born, time that takes away from work and is most commonly put in by the mother.
