Getting a good job is getting even more difficult. Now imagine having to declare at a job interview whether you are pregnant or not. Do you think you will stand a chance of getting the job if you did?
A survey of 3,000 managers by the Equality and Human Rights Commission in the United Kingdom found that 74 percent of private sector bosses believe women should have to tell a prospective employer if they are pregnant.
702/CapeTalk’s Redi Tlhabi posed a question to our listeners and some of their responses would leave you astound. Take a listen below
Here are some of the twitter responses to the topic:
@RediTlhabi Unfair of employer to expect women to tell them about their plans of falling pregnant.Invasion of privacy bathong.— Julz (@TheonlyJulz) July 29, 2015
@RediTlhabi Pregnancy does not affect men in the workplace. It is discrimination to punish women because of biology.— Sipokazi Poswa-Lerot (@LerotPoswa) July 29, 2015
