she's a known liar so i don't believe a word she says but even if it's true so what? a pregnant woman wouldn't be able to work as much and once she gives birth she would be busy with the baby meaning she wouldn't be able to work then either, so why wouldn't they let her go?
It’s wrong to discriminate against either gender for getting pregnant.

It feels like theatre at this point. This woman and Joe 'just as nepostic as Trump but somehow stupider about it' Biden are really the frontrunners in the DNC primaries? They aren't even trying. Which is sensible, considering Trump + incumbency, but it's no fun when you can see all the strings. We'll still get to watch them reeeeesist and claim this is the most important election in history, but it's clear their hearts aren't in it.

I always found this story odd, especially since she wrote a rather insightful book entitled The Two-Income Trap
She had been a Republican for 3x longer than she had been a Democrat when she wrote that.

Either way, maternity leave is a really important social good and should be something covered by the UI system.

I totally agree. Everything just seems so bland and dispirited now. Biden and Warren only seem like candidates because they're "supposed" to be candidates. Everyone is boring and lame. It's sort of reminiscent of John Kerry's campaign in some ways.

I actually do want to check out that Warren book, though many of the comments on Amazon are all calling out her hypocrisy. Someone even said, "The preface is new and pretty much debunks the rest of the book. I hate when politicians are so fickle." Hmm.

Warren is trying, and that's the problem. She's trying way too hard. She's constantly pandering, and, while most of her pandering makes her look weak, the lying is making her look like an asshole as well.

The fun thing: the "either gender" part makes this still not woke enough for CURRENT YEAR.

The not so fun thing: some men are discriminated against when their wives get pregnant, as the employer realizes the dude isn't going anywhere and will tolerate any injustice for the sake of the future baby.

Honestly you should be able to ask women to refrain from pregnancy while working for you, either between certain times or in total and fire them if they break the agreement

How is pregnancy different from any other lifestyle choice like shooting heroin or extreme body mods that also impacts upon your ability to show up to work
maternity leave should also be entirely optional for employers

So rather than doing any investigating to try and obtain any truth, or trying to explain why Warren's current story contradicts so much of the information and evidence we've seen in the past, or make any attempt to scrutinize a DNC front-runner who's been repeatedly caught in a lie, they instead publish an article that suggests even looking into it would be sexist.

For fuck's sake lol

Fucking Christ ROFL, have they finally just given up?

The particularly insidious thing in this lie, is according to the records it looks like the School District, the employers that she is now slandering, went out of their way to do the right thing. To be accommodating to her needs. They did precisely what everyone wanted. They treated a pregnant woman in the best possible way. For that they get a knife in the back as that woman seeks to better herself through political power. Yeah! There's a lesson in Warren's story. Just not the one she expects to be teaching.

This is the type of article you would expect on Buzzfeed, Vox, or Vice. Not a once world-renowned centrist news network like CNN.

I'm just fucking amazed instead of doing their job and ignoring any sort of slander, Tramp turned CNN into what he was warning people it was: fake news.

Well, they don't expect to win because Trump + incumbancy, which is why they are still pushing (halfheartedly) impeachment. It's totally theatre though, because they havn't found anything that they can nail him on to impeach or use against him. Everything they try blows up in their faces. But the show must go on, because they sold their core voting base the idea that he is Hitler reborn, which is also why they can't be seen to agree with him (unless it very much serves their forever war neoimperialism crew)
