Massachusetts Lawmakers Advance Bill To Protect Pregnant Workers

The Massachusetts State House

     Massachusetts is poised to require greater on-the-job protections for pregnant workers.

        The Pregnant Workers Fairness Act passed unanimously in the Massachusetts House earlier this week. 

         The bill has been a priority for a coalition of women’s rights groups since it was introduced in 2015.     

        WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill spoke with Linda Matys O’Connell, acting executive director of the South Hadley-based organization MotherWoman.

The record-setting tenure of Springfield Mayor Domenic Sarno. The 2011 tornado and its recovery that remade the largest city in Western Massachusetts. The fallout from the deadly COVID outbreak at the Holyoke Soldiers Home. Those are just a few of the thousands and thousands of stories WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill has covered for WAMC in his nearly 17 years with the station.
