Major Companies Accused of Pregnancy Discrimination

Several major companies brag on their websites about celebrating and empowering women, while, according to the New York Times, they quietly discriminate against pregnant women.  After an extensive investigation of public records and interviews with women, the article called out companies by name.  They include Whole Foods, AT&T and Twenty-First Century Fox, to name a few.  Christine Macarelli, in sales at Novartis, a healthcare company, said her boss told the single mother she “should consider an abortion.”  She didn’t and after her maternity leave, she said they advised her not to pursue any more promotions due to her “unfortunate circumstances at home.”  That is her son Anthony.  Pregnancy isn’t a disease.  Babies are a blessing.
