Well, they don't want new human beings coming into the world. They would rather have the human population go down I guess. Too inconvenient to have females popping babies out at the expense of productivity and profits. Too inconvenient. Perhaps it's a good idea to let this species become extinct. Look at the chaos all around the world. The only thing that hasn't happened yet is a nuclear war. With all the war mongering going on, I wouldn't be surprised if that happened as well. Sad race!

I am in a supportive workplace and I had it stuff. The joke is that you can’t have kids (if you are a women) until you get a permanent job which could easily 8 years and I know I’m lucky. And I know other women who work in other industries who have it far far crazy worse.

When I was pregnant with my first child, the restaurant I worked for made me clean out a turkey spit while it was cooking and told me to climb a high ladder to dust the tops of the curtains when they have never done and there were literally ten other people nearby. This is after they found out I was pregnant. Right before they found out, they gave me a raise saying that I worked harder than anyone else. I didn’t quit because I needed the money. My dad is a lawyer but wasn’t talking to me at the time for becoming pregnant while not married.

My husband and I just had our first son and he's about six months old now I was waiting tables at IHOP when I was pregnant with him up to the day that I delivered and it was the only job I could have because nobody else would hire me knowing that I was pregnant when my belly start to show and I told him repeatedly that the doctor said I shouldn't be lifting over 20 lb however I still was forced to carry glass racks and buckets of ice that weight up to 50 lbs or forfeit my job that I needed to set up my home for my child so thank goodness there were a bunch of kind women working with me and they helped me out with the work that I couldn't do myself but not all the time and not when I had to work the floor by myself because everybody can't simply stop doing that work to help me but regardless my manager was a man and he had seven children his self it's still refused to let a pregnant girl sit down and catch your breath it was ridiculous I contemplate calling human resources about it but I know several women that I worked with that have already called human resources about this manager and a night manager who's really grabby and in response human resources did absolutely nothing and they got punished at work when somebody slipped out about calling HR

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.

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.

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 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.

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.

Focux No, it‘s really not. And you know that, don‘t you? So why feel the need to comment? Is it because you feel that your own mediocrity has caused you to have less than you feel you deserve, and you need to blame Woc for that? Or is it just a lack of nuance, insight or empathy? Do you feel angry at the world, and therefor have the need to hate watch videos, and write hateful comments, even though you know you‘re actually helping Samantha by watching? Either way, it might be healthier for you to talk to a therapist, rather than to attempt witty, edgy internet comments- you‘re just kind of missing the witty and edgy part.

Focux You‘re absolutely right. So, let‘s just all not have children anymore, then the problem is solved right? However, weirdly enough, society does not want that either. If a woman doesn‘t work, she‘s called old-fashioned, and if she doesn‘t have children she‘s called heartless, and if she takes time off to have the child, while working, she‘s clearly at fault and should be paid less, as if she was going on a ten-month vacation. No matter what she chooses, it‘s always wrong. But yeah, your smartass comment definitely solved the problem. Congrats, genius.

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 10 Monate
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 10 Monate
+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 10 Monate
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 - Vor 10 Monate
