Women make up almost half of our nation’s labor force, and 40 percent of women are the sole or primary breadwinners for their families. When women choose to have children, their employers should respect that choice, not discriminate against them. This means accommodating the needs of pregnant women at work–basic needs like being able to sit down, go to the bathroom, or get a drink of water.
We need to protect pregnant workers everywhere. And that starts by passing the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act.
