Can We Talk About These Women Being Told To ‘Schedule’ Their Pregnancies?
A company in China has told married female staff members that they need to schedule getting pregnant so that they're not all on maternity leave at the same time...
Prepare to raise your eyebrows, shake your fist and / or give up on society altogether. Because a company in China has allegedly asked its female staff members to ‘schedule’ their pregnancies, so that they don’t take maternity leave at the same time and leave the business without any employees.
Yep, appearing to forget that pregnancy is a manandwoman’s responsibility – not to mention the fact that the human body is unpredictable at the best of times – a credit union in Jiaozuo, Henan, are reported to have announced their new policy over email.
And while that email has since been shared over Chinese social media, one (male) official has attempted to justify it by explaining that the union had recently hired many young women, and was concerned that business would be affected if they all got pregnant at once.
Leading us to wonder whether he got confused about the subject matter, and thought he was discussing a hutchful of extra-fertile bunny rabbits who just so happened to have a typing speed of 75 words per minute.
But it gets worse.
If the female employeesdareto deviate from the schedule, they’ll lose their end of year bonuses, and chances of future promotion. Plus, they’ll face a fine of 1000 yuan (£103).
