Are You A Young Woman Who Wants A Job? Well Good Luck Because Companies Won't Hire You Because You've Got A Uterus. Seriously.

managers hire young men over young women for fear of maternity leave messed up wow

Pretty sure Tina Fey and Amy Poehler would disagree with this way of thinking.

But, WHATEVER.

The firm Slater & Gordon conducted a survey of 500 managers and found some incredibly startling and very illegal results that have to do with hiring women in the workplace.

Apparently more than 40% of the people surveyed admitted to being weary of hiring a woman who is close to the 'childbearing' time of her life… because maternity leave is too high of a cost.

AND around the same amount of people admitted that they were ALSO hesitant to hire a woman for a senior role in the company if she's already had a child.

Uh, so this rules out a majority of women?

Not only this, but the survey found out that 44% of the managers admitted they would rather hire a young man to get around the issue of maternity leave.

Oh, and the best part? 1/3 of the managers claimed that when women returned from maternity leave, they're 'not as good' at their jobs.

So, there's that. Companies are still hiring for positions based on these archaic principles.

Remember that time that this is ILLEGAL and also completely F*CKED UP?!?!

Come on, people. It's 2014, get it together.

    It's leery, not weary. Companies are leery of hiring women.

    Good luck, my job of 25 years got outsourced to China, there is a lot of that going on these days. Maybe a bit less then my experience as they find out the people are not well trained.

    I can't believe that the US only legally allows for what is it, 6 weeks of maternity leave? It's insane. We get 12 months here and those Scandinavians have got it good! They get several years that they don't need to take right at birth, they can use them over a certain time span so you can be with your child.
