More than 60% of women have seen pregnancy discrimination on the job. The #PWFA would ensure employers make reasonable accommodations for pregnant workers. No one should have to choose between their baby’s health & a paycheck! #ProtectPregnantWorkers
Proud to join my House colleagues in passing the Equity and Inclusion Enforcement Act. This legislation will empower the victims of discrimination to challenge schools that are not providing equal access to a quality education. https://t.co/0F9SVlcmfB
The struggle and perseverance of those who fought for educational equality changed the lives of countless Americans and led the way for the many Civil Rights Activists who followed.
72 Republicans & 1 Independent voted against strengthening federal discrimination protections for pregnant workers.
Pregnant women shouldn’t have to face any form of discrimination in the workplace.
That is why I’m a proud supporter of the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act, which will help protect women against pregnancy discrimination. https://t.co/3URlPxnc8i
Despite current protections in the law, pregnancy discrimination continues to burden working women and their families. I’m glad the House today passed the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act, and I’m eager for my colleagues in the Senate to take it up. (3/3)
Both sides are against discrimination and bias against any individual.
