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.

Look…

Celebs are just like us (kinda!)

Some stars weren't birthed into early success like the Olsen Twins

Most of Hollywood's elite started out working normal jobs to make ends meat, while auditioning for their dream roles!

Take Amy Adams, for instance!

The Oscar-nominee was a hostess at Hooters before her first successful flick!

And pre-becoming a household name, Johnny Depp pushed ball point pens for a living!

Want to see which other stars lived normal-waged lives before the glitz and glamour kicked in?!

Filed under: Ashton KutcherInspirationShakiraTech TalkIM5Cute Kidz

Plus, we think we spotted our adorable IM5 boys in there somewhere, along with Ashton Kutcher, Shakira, and MORE!!

It's amazing to us that not very many schools teach any kind of real computer science before kids move on to upper levels of schooling! We're talking coding and the creative side of things, not just how to type and use computers!

With how much the world is moving towards being completely linked by technology, and the amount of jobs out there in the industry, this is something schools should be incorporating at breakneck speeds!

So watch the PSA above and listen to the arguments and then help schools in YOUR area become one with the Hour of Code!!

You can totes find out more HERE!! What a great cause!
