Pregnancy Discrimination | August 8, 2018 Act 2 | Full Frontal on TBS

  • Am 9 Aug 2018 veröffentlicht
  • 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?

    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.

    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.

    So in other words their pregnancies prevented them from doing the jobs they were hired for...
    Most positions cannot accommodate less hours, weeks off, let alone the restrictions the employee chose to take on knowing it interferes with their ability to do their job.
    If a crane operator decides to have lazer eye surgery, it's not the employers job to jump through hoops for the employees choices.
    If you're in an unskilled job, don't expect your positon to remain empty if you abruptly leave or stop doing your duties. If youre in a skilled position that can't be vacant, expect your position to be filled as it can't be left undone.
    Best case, plan your life choices for the times that fit best with everything else going on in your life, maybe wait till the big work project ends before popping out a baby, or schedule the time off in advance so your work isn't caught by surprise.

    Wage decrease for a working lady with new born is sad, there should be protection to their y-o-y salary hike, but pointing out men salary increase due to a child birth is unhealthy. After all it should help average the cost for a family with a new born.
    Issue is that it is the single mom's who are suffering the most, when it comes to supporting a child. But then shouldn't it also be the responsibility of the man who willing fathered the child, to support her.

  • Markus Johnsen
    Markus Johnsen Vor 4 Tage +1

    There are fair reasons why having pregnancies lower your relative wage compared to that of someone who has not carried a child. In Norway mothers get up to 10 months paid leave from work. This is a good investment for both the mothers and childrens health and development. However, this means the mother will have 10 months less seniority at the workplace, and she may also be less flexible with what shifts she can work due to the childs dependence on her. Where I work, flexibility is what earns you the most.

    • Markus Johnsen

      Winter Dream it sounds like your experience was pretty terrible.
      Let me turn this around for you. If a man worked the same job as a post-pregnancy woman, with the same amount of experience, with the same education, doing the same shifts, he would be paid exactly the same as the woman.
      Without checking any sources right now, I would think Scandinavia is the best place for a woman to be working if she wants equal rights, opportunities and a family.

    • Winter Dream
      Winter Dream Vor 3 Tage

      +Markus Johnsen good reason not to move to Norway then. If I'm doing the same kind of work on an equal level, pay me the same and don't pass me over, pregnant or not. When I was pregnant long ago and working as an assistant manager, I was passed over for a promotion. Instead they made a guy who had no managerial skills and couldn't operate a cash register the new manager. During rushes, I had to operate my drawer AND help him on his. Finally I left and left them to their own disaster as they deserved. Later after my child was born, I went back to work with the same skills and needing to support my child like any other parent. And production doesn't go down when I goes up.

    • Markus Johnsen
      Markus Johnsen Vor 3 Tage

      Working the same amount of hours does not mean they produce the same result. This is why wages go up a "ladder" in Norway, based on how much experience you have accumulated in your line of work. People with children, often but not always mothers, tend to spend more time with their family than at work.
      Another argument is that working 19hr shifts from 15.00 to 10.00 the next day is something people with children tend to avoid. 17 of those 19 hours are paid extra, because of the inconvenience.
      I am not saying women should be paid less because of pregnancies. I am trying to explain that it is not necessarily because of discrimination that they earn less. At least in Norway that is.

    • Focux

    Are you sure, "let them do their job" is the right ending to segment that spent more than half it's time explaining how some pregnant women needed to find new jobs at work, & were denied transfers? Perhaps the proper ending would of been, "Let them do the job they can." Because it sounds like her conclusion of "asking" means every pregnant woman's situation is uniquely different in their ability to continue doing their job, or needing to find a different job to continue working.
    Otherwise a great piece as usual!! I love Samantha Bee!!

    Commenting before it gets deleted by the Full Censorship with Leftist Bee channel. Feminists have been pushing to destabilize the balance of gender roles by first, lying that there aren't any and second, trying to influence women to do as much of the opposite of what their role entails as possible. Women who stay at home, have kids, and shape the next generation are statistically much happier. Instead today women who aspire to fill the traditional working man's role, have kids then underpay a babysitter (often a foreign one who must also put her own children at a low-end daycare) to take care of the kids so they can work at their 8 hour office jobs and then come home and spend money spoiling their kids with materialistic things because they feel guilty about not having done their innate duty of staying home at taking care of them thus creating a generation of entitled individuals with a head full of fallacies and no idea on how a family structure should operate, therefore breaking up the family and leaving no room for respect towards either parent. This is the truth of the matter.
