Re: Lawmaker: Pregnant Workers Who Want Accommodations Should Quit
I think the laws only state that we are paid ovetime after forty hours, unless we are under a contract? I think they state we are to be provided with a safe working environment and given a twenty minute break after six hours of work. I'm not sure there is anything else to it? Maybe there is a law that says we can't be forced to work more than a certain number of hours? I really don't know.
I do know that it isn't right to fire a woman for being pregnant, unless there was something in the contract and you signed it.
I don't think getting pregnant is a need or a must. I think it's a want. So, I'm not so sure anything can be done about forcing employers to keep your job or to pay a mother for staying home. It's a hell of a nice perc for some, though. I know there are many who get it, but they are usually working for bigger corporations or salary workers.
Sorry you got fired.
